PLEASANTON -- City officials will present on Wednesday a free informational program aimed at helping families of young adults with developmental disabilities.

The educational session, titled "Transition Information Night," is slated to run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Pleasanton Senior Center, at 5353 Sunol Blvd.

Presentations there will focus on the challenges that teens with developmental disabilities often face as they transition from high school to adulthood.

Also, a panel of housing experts will share information about independent and supported living, shared housing, group homes and other types of available services.

Representatives from several social service agencies will staff information tables and be ready to answer questions about adult day programs, self-advocacy support, transportation and paratransit services, and other programs for young adults after they graduate high school.

The evening is being co-sponsored by Tri-Valley REACH, the Alameda County Developmental Disabilities Council and the Pleasanton Unified School District WorkAbility Program.
