This webinar will feature a parent and daughter discussing their experiences and perspectives about making the health care transition.

Topics will include:

  • What information and help from your health care provider would be most useful,
  • Concerns about making the shift to adult care, and
  • Suggestions for health care providers for pediatric and adult patients to make the transition successful for youth and young adults with autism and their caregivers.

This webinar will also provide new and useful resources available at Got Transition, the national resource center on health care transition supported by the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.
