Family Training Series

The Family Training Series is a collaborative learning series designed and executed by the Clark County Developmental Disabilities Program, Okanogan County, Clark County Parent Coalition (PEACE), Vancouver, Camas, and Evergreen School Districts, ESD 112 and PAVE.

This learning series provides information and resources to families preparing for their students to transition from school to adult life. Each session focuses on a unique area of the transition. Examples of sessions include:

  • How to navigate the adult service system
  • How to build a whole life following the exit from school
  • Understanding your social security benefits and work incentives
  • Guardianship and trusts
  • Guiding your employment services

The information in the sessions are targeted for families and educators, although other community members who are interested in transition are welcome. In addition to the presentation, attendees have the opportunity to network with the presenters and other community members who have attended each session. The 2023-24 series is delivered in a combination of virtual sessions and select in-person workshops. See individual session details and registration below.
