Parents and Caregivers

The transition of young people with SCI from paediatric (children’s) to adult healthcare is a process made up of various stages. You can read about the stages here in the healthcare transition timeline for parents/caregivers of young people with SCI. It is important to remember that these stages are just a guide and your child’s progress through the stages may vary depending on their development.

By clicking on each age range below you will find more information, resources, and tools to help you and your child navigate through each stage of the transition process.

Remember you and your child are not alone in preparing for the transition.

Ask for advice and assistance from doctors and other healthcare professionals, or get in touch with the paediatric peer support team. Read more about who may be included in your child’s healthcare team here.
