Families face new challenges when young people with disabilities become adults. To help families plan for the future, The Frostig Center will hold a special presentation by experts who will address pathways to employment for young adults with learning disabilities and alternatives to conservatorships.
The event, which is part of The Frostig Center Speaker Series, will be held Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Ibrahim Saab, a client’s rights advocate at the North Los Angeles County Regional Center, will provide information about power of attorney, assignment of education decision-making authority, and other issues related to conservatorships.
Rebecca Hoyt, a client advocate with Disability Rights California, will focus on how young adults can prepare for and obtain meaningful employment in the community. She will share information on agencies that assist people with disabilities and the types of services available.
Their discussion will be geared toward families with high school students who are preparing for adulthood. Families with younger children who want to look ahead as well as teachers and therapists, who work with children with special needs, will also benefit from the presentation.
The Frostig Center is a non-profit organization that strives to improve the lives of children with learning differences through research, community outreach, and Frostig School. Frostig also provides services to young adults with learning differences who are transitioning to college and work.
Free parking is available at The Frostig Center, located at 971 N. Altadena Drive.
