Children’s Medical Services’ Youth and Young Adult Transition program helps youth and young adults with special health care needs learn self-determination and develop strategies for a successful transition into adulthood. Each of the 22 Children's Medical Services area offices in Florida has designated a care coordinator (either a nurse or social worker—some offices have teams) as a point of contact for communications about youth and young adult transition. The care coordinator identifies national, state, and community resources for the successful transition of youth and young adults with special health care needs to all aspects of adult life; including health, work, and integration within their community.
