Transition

People with intellectual and other developmental disabilities may find it more difficult to transition through various life stages as there is often more planning required to get the best outcomes.

Transition

DDWA want to support people to proactively plan for common transition points in life such as:

  • Diagnosis/early intervention
  • Accessing or planning for NDIS
  • Starting kindy/pre-school
  • Moving to primary school
  • Moving to high school
  • Leaving school
  • Starting study, employment
  • Changing employment
  • Starting relationships
  • Moving out of home
  • Retiring from work
  • Preparing for illness/death of a parent

We hope the information below will enable you to know your rights and access services you may need.
