SAILS Programming

At this time, the Transition to Adult Care Team will not be holding in-person SAILS programming. Currently, we are offering a virtual educational series, SAILS+,  focused on the needs of the parents and caregivers of developmentally and intellectually delayed and disabled young people. In the future, new SAILS content and session updates will be on this page.
