Preparation for Adulthood

It’s never be too early to start talking about your child's hopes and dreams for the future. Everyone in a child’s life has a responsibility to prepare them for the future. There are some really easy steps that parents/carers. Teachers and other professionals can take to support young people but the most important is to discuss the future

'Preparation for adulthood’ is a national framework that aims to ensure that all young people with special educational needs and disabilities have the support they need to ensure they achieve their full potential and live happy, healthy lives. Schools, colleges, health and social care services work together to help plan and prepare young people in four main areas;

  • continuing education, training or getting a job 
  • living independently  
  • having friends and being part of the local community
  • being as healthy as possible.
