Transitional Aged Youth Coordination

Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) Coordination supports youth (ages 14 to 18) transitioning to adult services who are currently receiving: Extended Society Care through Child Protective Services, or Complex Special Needs funding through Regional Complex Care. 

Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) Coordination supports youth (ages 14 to 18) transitioning to adult services who are currently receiving:

  • Extended Society Care through Child Protective Services
  • Complex Special Needs funding through Regional Complex Care

A TAY Coordinator helps ensure that youth nearing the age of transition, families, and service providers are provided with the information, choices, and resources needed for a successful transition. The TAY Coordinator develops an individualized transition plan which identifies the responsibilities of individuals, families, and service providers as the transition from children to adult services takes place. The plan is based on the young adult’s eligibility, personal goals, strengths, assessed needs, and available resources.

Case management is also provided to support more immediate needs for those youth who are transitioning from York Children’s Aide Society, Jewish Family and Child Service, Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions, and Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child & Family Services at, or shortly after, their 18th birthday. 

The involvement of the TAY Coordinator can begin as early as 14 years of age. This allows time to support the youth and family in preparing for the transition to adult services and to ensure that required supporting documentation (assessments, identifications, etc.) is in place prior to 16 years of age.

Support Provided Through The Program:

  • Provides information and support to the young adult, family, and team to ensure a successful linkage and transition between the child and adult systems
  • Works in coordination with the Child in Care Worker and/or Case Manager during different stages of transition to adult services
  • Identifies the transition-age youth’s future goals and support needs in an individual and flexible transition plan. Transition planning includes all team members or the young adult, family, school, case manager, behavior supports, supporting agency, etc. Transition planning includes:
  1. Social-emotional needs
  2. Health/medical/dietary needs
  3. Schooling, job readiness
  4. Supports Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
  5. Communication and environmental considerations, and
  6. Financial, family, and moving considerations (furniture, etc.)
