Thinking About The Future Guide

Written by Hertfordshire County CouncilDate 01 Sep 2013

The Ideas 4 Life transition guide developed in partnership with parents and Hertfordshire Local Authority is for the use of parents and carers of young people with additional needs.

This is a comprehensive transition guide, covering many aspects of children’s lives. Some of it will be relevant to you, some may not. It is for parents and carers who want a fast and easy pointer to the services they need to help their son or daughter move smoothly towards adulthood and employment.

The plan will contain all the most important points about your son or daughter’s strengths, aims, and wishes.

The Ideas 4 Life software is a ‘person centred’ planning tool that could be filled out with your son or daughter in school. He or she can add their own views and can ask for support in doing this. It can be very creative, with photos and videos, producing a plan of what your son or daughter would like to do

There is also a quick guide available to download.
