Healthcare Transition Toolkit

Youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities face a variety of barriers to accessing and managing their health care when they reach adulthood. Youth may no longer have access to the same source of health coverage that they had before they turned 18. They may have difficulty finding adult-oriented health care providers who understand their health care and communication needs. And they may not get the supports they need in order to understand their health care options and make decisions for themselves. ASAN provides a toolkit on health care and the transition to adulthood resources for advocacy both on an individual and a system-wide basis with downloadable tools, resources, guiding forms, legislation and next step guides to help ease the process and increase accessibility.
