About this resource Stepping out provides information to help families support their teenage son or daughter with a disability move from secondary school to adult life. The information has been developed from: ¡ research findings ¡ focus group meetings held across NSW ¡ input from parents and service providers to a website forum ¡ advice from a Project Advisory Group established by Ageing, Disability and Home Care, Department of Human Services NSW (ADHC). This resource is not intended to be exhaustive. Young people with a disability and their families are diverse and have wide ranging needs, interests and talents. For this reason the booklet gives general information only. Readers are encouraged to use the links and contacts to seek more specific information that will be relevant to their own needs and interests. Contacts, including phone numbers and websites, are located in the Useful contacts section at the end of this booklet.
