To go from something to something else, something new, is essential to your growth and life. Different people are equipped differently to deal with these transitions. Most people need guidance, support and help to get through the transitions in life. Support from parents, relatives and sometimes professional help.

If you have a disability, such as a rare diagnosis, transitions in life can be especially challenging when you often need extensive support in everyday life and from various parts of society. Dealing with transitions relating both to the people who have a disability and their families may involve, for example starting school, different stages in their schooling or transition from child to adulthood.
