Turning 18 is a big deal for all individuals. An 18-year-old is legally considered an adult in Virginia. That means that when your child turns 18, he/she is the person that makes legal, financial, medical, and educational decisions in his/her life. For some individuals with disabilities, this will not be a big issue. Others may need support. In this webinar we will discuss the things that parent need to consider and plan for before their child turns 18.
