TTT (SDJ) — Health Care Changes, Too 11.23.21

As we look ahead to our students/children turning 18, we need to keep an eye on health care. What steps need to be taken to move into the world of adult health care? What skills can be taught (even in middle school)? How can we tell what a student needs to know? Tim Markle from the Southern Regional Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and the Wisconsin Youth Health Transition Initiative, and his young adult son Hunter, will be our presenters.
