From May 2nd through May 4th, the HDS Foundation (HDSF) will partake in Visions XXV, the annual transition conference held by the Florida Division on Career Development & Transition (FDCDT). The purpose of the FDCDT is to assist individuals with exceptionalities in their career development, helping them move from school into the workforce and community living. This year will also be a celebration of 25 years of the FDCDT. At the conference it is a goal of the HDSF to gather more information on the transitioning process.
There are currently services available for those affected with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and for those only affected by developmental disabilities (DD). It is another goal of the HDSF at the Transitions conference to find out why there seem to be more programs and services for those affected by IDD then those only affected with DD. With well over 50 pre-planned and open sessions available at the conference, along with the networking opportunities amongst various industry experts who will be attending, it is hopeful that the HDSF will be able to answer these questions and more.
