dc.description.abstractYouth with disabilities comprise a special category of children with disabilities because they are in transition from a health care environment that includes parental and school-based supports to one that requires independence and self-advocacy. In addition, as these youth enter adulthood, they become part of a national population segment, 18 to 24 year olds, who are least likely to have a usual place to go to for medical care (U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, 2006). Thus, healthy care providers need to be aware of their special needs for access to health care services and information, as well as their need for opportunities to participate in decisions about their own health care.
