  • The optimal goal of health care transition is to provide health care that is family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, & culturally competent in a health care system that is as developmentally appropriate as it is technically sophisticated.

Healthy & Ready To Work (HRTW) Initiative

WHY?

  • 90% of CYSHCN are now living to adulthood.
  • Employment rate for adults with disabilities hovers around 30%.
  • SSI disability programs continue to grow in number of recipients.
  • Access to health insurance, health care, & utilization of services are cited as barriers.
  • The transition to adulthood, including employment & independence, is a natural progression in a lifespan approach to systems of care for CYSHCN.
