SALT (School to Adult Life Transition) provides resources, meetings, & local event info to families of children with disabilities serving the Darke, Miami, and Preble Counties in Ohio.
STUDENTS (ages 14 – 22) are also encouraged to attend their own series, which takes place at the same time as the parents’ SALT series. Students will be able to socialize with others, while participating in fun interactive activities to help them prepare for the transition from school to adult life.
These trainings are brought to you by a collaboration of Darke, Miami and Preble Counties. For SALT in these counties, contact Patti Shrom at email@example.com.
