Health Care Transition

Health Care Transition Workshops for Families

Health Care Transition

Health Care Transition is the change from pediatric to adult healthcare services. This transition typically takes place between the ages of 12 and 26 years. Extra planning may be needed if your child has a developmental disability or special health care need.  This webpage offers tools, resources, and trainings to help guide your child’s transition to adult-centered healthcare.
