for Delaware Transition-Age Youth and their Families
The transition from childhood to adulthood can be both exciting and challenging. There are many things to keep in mind as you (or your child) approach adulthood. While it is never too late to plan for the future, we recommend that you start thinking about and preparing for the transition to adulthood early in the teenage years.
This guide provides information to assist you in becoming your own advocate. It provides an overview of common employment and vocational issues and questions that you will likely face.
This guide does not cover every topic related to employment that you might encounter, but is here to offer you some insight into some common issues. Each individual’s situation is unique and this guide is not intended to constitute legal advice on your specific circumstances.
