State Transition Leadership Team for the PA Department of Education

The Collaborative Group:

* Listened to families who struggle with questions about access to adult medicine, changes in health care insurance, time lines for change, and employers who do not understand unique health concerns

* Reviewed checklists, literature, Healthy People 2010 Objectives, the March 2002 New Freedom Initiative

* Built on this knowledge

* Then began with the question: Does the individual's health impact on the transition activity?
