Age of Majority: Preparing Your Child for Making Good Choices

Introduction

Parents want their children to have the skills they need to succeed as adults. While this is important for every young person, youth with disabilities often face extra challenges. That’s why they need to be actively involved in setting their high school goals and planning for their transition to adulthood well before they reach the age of majority. (In most states, the age of majority is 18, but there are exceptions. It is important to know your state’s laws.)

This issue of the Parent Teacher Conference Hnadouts presents a guide to how parents can better prepare their children to make good choices.
