Parents of youth with disabilities are often told that they must file for guardianship when their child turns 18 if they want to continue advocating for them. Join our discussion and learn:

  • The difference between guardianship & alternatives
  • How alternatives can allow youth to keep their legal rights while continuing to receive support from their families
  • Whether guardianship or alternatives are appropriate for a young adult with disabilities
  • How to support young adults while promoting self-reliance and independence
