Navigating the world during the transition into adulthood is challenging and daunting at the best of times, not least when there are other circumstances which can make it even more difficult.
There are many different challenges that young adults with learning disabilities may face during this period of their lives and it is important to offer as much support as possible to make this less stressful and less difficult for them.
One of the main challenges faced are educational transitions. Entering adulthood marks the end of mandatory education and the shift into post-secondary education.
For many, having the support of special education programmes is incredibly helpful and no longer having access to these can be upsetting and stressful.
Luckily, there are still a range of services for those who still require specialised support and assistance and further education which can make this transition much easier.
Day centres and skills hubs are great spaces which support, encourage and teach those with learning disabilities some key and important life skills as they grow into adults.
Employment can also be tricky to navigate as there are unfortunately barriers which those with learning disabilities must overcome when seeking employment.
Again, the services in place to help teach valuable skills and help to prepare for the working world, interviews and working with others and with customers are a great opportunity for growth and development.
All this additional support and information works to help promote better social and emotional wellbeing by ensuring these young adults are as prepared and supported as they can be while navigating these big life changes.
By continuing to help and support people, they can grow to be more independent and achieve many goals and milestones, becoming more confident and self-sufficient.
