The Center for Transition to Adult Health Care for Youth with Disabilities is a national health care transition resource center. The goal of the center is to empower youth and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) ages 12-26 to direct their own transition from pediatric to adult care with no reduction in quality of care and no gaps in service.
What is Health Care Transition (HCT)?
HCT is the process of moving from a pediatric to an adult model of health care.
The goal of HCT is to learn skills to manage your own health and health services, with support.
