  •  Discussion on the research factors associated with adult success.
  •  How to set reasonable expectations and start the step-by-step process toward adult success.
  •  What's best for you?  College, Trade schools, and employment?
  •  Independent living skills (e.g., cooking, cleaning, shopping, budgeting)
