What does preparing for adulthood mean?
For young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND), planning for adulthood begins in Year 9 (the school year in which a child has their 14th birthday), and in some cases will continue until their 25th birthday. We often call this phase in life 'transition' or a 'transition to adulthood'.
