Planning Your Future

In this section, you will find a number of handouts to help youth, parents (and health-care providers) learn more about, and when to, access resources that will support transition to adult life.

For many patients with chronic health conditions and/or disabilities, a major aspect of transition planning is learning about and connecting to the appropriate supports for adults. While your health-care providers are working to support your “medical” transitions, these handouts describe a number of other transitions that will happen in your life, according to the following categories.

Download a full PDF version or download the handouts individually by section by clicking on the titles below:

We are always working on building and adding new resources. If you have an idea or request for a new resource, Contact us at good2go.requests@sickkids.ca.

Note for health-care providers: All health-care providers have an important role in both providing information to patients and facilitating these other “life” transitions that are interdependent with “medical” transfer. Good 2 Go can provide education to health care providers within SickKids on how to integrate and evaluate the use of these resources in your clinical practice. Contact us for more information.
