This session explores the intersectional identities of race and disability and discusses the transition to adulthood process for diverse young people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Participants will learn about common barriers to service, challenges that these young people and their families face, and how to work toward positive outcomes beyond high school. A set of culturally responsive Transition Guides will be presented as an example of how agencies may engage and build trust with young people from diverse cultures.
