Adolescent Health Transition Project

What has health got to do with Transition? Everything!!

Good health is an important part of being successful in work, school and other activities. Having a disability or chronic illness does not mean a person cannot be healthy. It does mean that learning how to stay healthy is an important part of learning to be independent!
