The COVID-19 crisis has changed everything at the moment.
Naturally you are worried about what this means when your young person is due to leave school this year. What choices will they have?
The Transition Support Project (TSP) can help you think about the next steps.
Claire Edwards and Lindsay Graham from TSP can:
Talk about what is going on for you with all this uncertainty
Help you think about your young person's strengths, interests and needs
Talk about what kind of service or opportunity will best meet
those needs and give them a chance to build on their strengths and interests
The project works alongside the Young Adults with Disability Team and is
a pilot project at St Crispin's and Braidburn.
During the crisis we are available to the families of 2020 leavers
from all the special schools in Edinburgh
If you would like to have a chat with one of us please tell your social worker.
With your consent, they can pass on your telephone number
and then we will arrange a good time for you to talk.
