Guideposts for Success

December 15, 2016 Publication

The transition from youth to adulthood is challenging for almost every young person. This is particularly true for young people with disabilities. Yet, it is in those crucial transition-age years that a young person’s future can be determined. The Guideposts can help steer families, institutions, and youth themselves through the transition processes.

NCWD/Youth has identified Guideposts for Success based on what research tells us that all youth need to transition to adulthood successfully. The Guideposts provide:

  • a statement of principles;
  • a direction that will lead to better outcomes for all young people; and,
  • a way to organize policy and practice.
