21 What are we What are we saying NO to? The opportunity to TRY To fail, learn and to try again 21 You can’t do it as well as I can I don’t want you to get hurt.

22 1. CHANGING PERSPECTIVES: What are your first thoughts about transition for your child/youth? Thinking again from another point of view, how else can you describe this emotion, the fears, the anxieties, where are you confident or not? What are the fear and anxieties that delay the start of transition. How does looking at a different perspective promote movement forward. 22

24 Anna Cyr Take small steps, practice letting go Two daughters – different individuals Julie Sullivan Parents need parents who have been there and need their guidance on where to start. Due to day to day struggles we (parents) won’t begin unless forced to~ either by their youth’s age, service requirements or other parents bringing us along. 24

25 Candid Conversation Julie Sullivan Some questions that HRTW professionals asked would have been ignored or I would have been insulted for being asked if asked to me by teachers, MD’s or other providers. Parents and speaking from personal experience, I felt it carried weight and was real. I took notice and considered how I can apply this to my daughter’s life. (myself & our staff) We not only needed parents to ask those hard questions but we need to be held accountable and asked “did you?” We did this on follow up conf. calls. We couldn’t ask other parents to do things if we weren’t doing it ourselves. In the process our parents leaders made copies of insurance cards, chore charts, and let their children order at McDonalds. 25

Julie Sullivan One parent who attended our transition training said she never thought of the insurance card and he will be going to college next year. Within a week of the training she gave him a card and this opened a discussion up of what a co-pay is and what your insurance card is for and how important it is to have with you. She shared that her son was very happy to have the card and proudly put it with his learners permit in his wallet. 31

38 Candid Conversation Mallory Cyr 1. Know when to ask for help My parents always supported me to try things on my own but they also helped me to learn to recognize when I had reached my breaking point and needed additional support and how to identify those key players. Over time I got better at this skill and could ask for help BEFORE I reached my breaking point. 2. Shoot for the stars/find a way. Growing up, I was never taught to consider my physical challenges to be a limiting factor in anything I wanted to do. I always thought with unlimited dreaming and what I WANTED to do. If it did end up being challenging we looked at ways to adapt or modify it or how I could do it, not what I should do instead. I think because of that I continue to aspire to higher goals and have become more resourceful in finding solutions when I do meet a challenge... 38
