The Community Support Network is pleased once again to offer our annual conference on post-secondary transition covering topics ranging from employment options, inclusive college programs, social and recreational programs, systems navigation, self-advocacy, and policy issues with several breakout tracks to choose from.
This year's threads include:

Self Help: Strategies and ideas to cope with stress and wellness ideas
Self Determination: Strategies to promote responsibility and independence
Inclusive Higher Education: Information and promising practices in college programs for students with I/DD
