Summit DD connects people of all ages to the supports and resources they need to be their best. So what does that look like for school-age kids with disabilities?
“Our goal is to connect children and families during those transition years,” explained Service and Supports Administration Manager Jill Boxler. “We also want to provide consistency for families.”
Just like adults, Summit DD SSAs and RSSs are a great resource for families with school-age children. Our knowledgeable staff can help children and families during their school-age years as well as help connect these teens to community resources and services such as employment, transportation or day program opportunities after graduation. SSAs and RSSs are also available to help families navigate school issues, such as IEPs, coordinate and monitor IFSP plans, as well as trouble shoot challenges that families may come across like equipment needs or respite services.
Summit DD SSAs are also there the help older kids and teens as they prepare for their future. These SSAs act as a guide to help identify interests and can assist young adults as they begin to map out their future.
“We don’t want anyone to fall through the cracks,” Boxler assured. “Our SSAs help provide a smooth transition for teens as they transition into adulthood.”
