The speaker at this meeting will be Catherine Friedman from Residential Living Options who will discuss living options for adults with additional needs and how to meet them. Her creative approach has helped many families successfully make this transition. She also can provide you with many resources on transition planning. Kathryn Vecchione will be a featured speaker. She has successfully lived in her own apartment for two years and will give a personal perspective on independent living and how it has effected her life.
