Creating Healthcare Independence for Youth on IEPs
Tuesday, January 15, 2019 12:30PM-1:30PM EST
Presenter: Patricia Nemia
Youth on IEPs participate in transition planning to develop the skills necessary to successfully move from school to postsecondary settings. Often the self- advocacy, self-determination, and disability awareness necessary to navigate the adult healthcare system are not considered. This webinar examines the challenges and consequences of overlooking the need for health care management as well as the successes and benefits of transitioning to adult healthcare services.
Bio: Pat Nemia is the Project Director of Mass Family Voices/Family-to-Family Health Information Center at the Federation for Children with Special Needs. The goal of Mass Family Voices is to assist families in making informed decisions about care for their children and youth with special health needs. Pat is a licensed physical therapist and spent many years in clinical, administrative, and educational healthcare.
