About

The NJ Youth Transition Conference was inspired by my friend Khalia, a 23-year old young adult residing in NJ who experiences an intellectual disability. Khalia was uninformed of services available to her in the youth and adult worlds, was not aware that she was entitled to an education until age 21 and had been without any service or supports for five years before receiving help to navigate the transition process.

Khalia now is eligible for DDD services, has a budget established by the NJCAT, and a Support Coordinator is working with Khalia to support her in the process of establishing her own career and independent housing.

This conference is for Khalia, for all of our NJ youth in transition and their families, as well as the professionals who serve them.

In service & support,
