Youth & Young Adults

Everyone wants to be independent, work, and follow their dreams. As a young person with a disability, you may face a few more obstacles in life than your friends without disabilities. The greatest adventure is learning what you need and then how to request accommodations that promote your success at school, work and play.

We hope to give you the tools that will help you begin your self-discovery journey. Don’t be afraid to try new things and, most of all, follow your dreams and dream big!
