Lost in transition
"Transition is (theoretically) the gentle, well-structured move from childhood to adulthood within disability support. I’ve heard other parents call it the ‘cliff’. That’s definitely not filling me with much confidence, actually I’m already losing a bit of sleep over that metaphorical cliff. I already feel as though I’ve fallen off the edge of the cliff and am holding on to the top by my fingertips!"
