2019-20 School-to-Adult Life Transition (SALT) Series dates, topics announced

The Montgomery, Greene and Warren County Boards of Developmental Disabilities have announced the dates and topics for their 2019-2020 School-to-Adult Life Transition Series meetings, which help middle and high school students ages 14-22 with developmental disabilities and their families plan for the future.

These free monthly meetings feature expert speakers that can help families prepare for transition by addressing topics important to people with disabilities, from employment planning and navigation to funding of services, guardianship considerations, financial and estate planning, and relationships. Sessions for students are held at the same time as those of parents, and take a slightly different -- and more interactive -- focus. Student session topics for 2019-20 include employment planning, developing healthy habits, self-advocacy, dating, safety, and planning for summer.

The first session for the 2019-2020 school year will focus on Employment Planning, and separate but concurrent sessions will be held for students and parents in three different Miami Valley locations:

  • September 10, Montgomery County: Miami Valley Regional Center/Montgomery County ESC, 4801 Springfield Street, Dayton, 45431. 
  • September 19, Greene County:  Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities, 245 Valley Road, Xenia, 45385.
  • September 25, Warren County:  Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities’ Warren C. Young Center Auditorium, 801 Drake Road, Lebanon, 45036. 

Families and students need only attend one of the three presentations held each month, as the material covered will be the same at each location.   

Dates, times and details for future sessions can be found at https://bit.ly/2Z3cFst.  Individuals without computer access can call 937-837-9253 to request a hard copy of the schedule.

Questions about the series can be directed to Parent Resource Trainer Patti Shrom at 513-277-9900 or prtpattis@gmail.com.  

All trainings are sponsored by the Employment First Local Leaders collaboration of Montgomery, Greene and Warren counties, which includes the Montgomery, Greene and Warren County Boards of Developmental Disabilities; Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities; the Ohio Department of Education State Support Team 10; the Montgomery and Greene County Educational Service Centers; and Ohio Means Jobs/Montgomery and Greene Counties’ Job & Family Services.
