Missoula Transition Conference!

Sierra just finished her presentation about Depression and Disability. It was so sad. Now she feels better. She has a new house and a new job for speaking about mental health. I took pictures of Sierra. I like to hang out with Sierra and my Consumer Advisory Council friends. It was a fun Conference.


Wednesday started with a presentation about tools for independence at work. I like to present with Isaac and Theresa. I talked about my destination box.

Then I presented with Danielle, Sierra, Theresa, and Kim. They talked about going to college. I talked about things to do on Campus besides studying.  I work and exercise on Campus.

Thursday morning we had our Consumer Advisory Council meeting.  I wore my Guatemala dress to show my friends.



In the after I helped with Show me the Money workshop. We played Bingo.

It was fun.

I presented with Tracy and Maclaen.

My last presentation was my favorite. I was in the bathroom just before I was to present and the fire alarm went off!  It scared me—such a loud beeping.  My Mom had to come get me to go outside.  I hung out with Heather and showed her my portfolio.  She showed me her wedding pictures.  I love wedding photos: such a pretty dress!

Then it was time for the last workshop of the day. I showed my feelings notebook in Health Care Transition Workshop with Isaac and Kim.

I remember to drink water and go to the bathroom by myself. I looked smart and competent. I saw lots of Big Sky friends. I saw Weston who is a Senior. He will graduate 2015! I ate lunch with mom and old friends.  High School is all done for me.

We talked about Adult life choices.

  1. Hi Matalia, The conference you attended and at which you presented looked SO interesting and informative. I clicked on all the Dropbox links to learn more about what you had said. However, I wanted you to know that only the “show me” one came up on my computer. The other two said “Problem Loading – Server not found”. Just wondering what the problem is?

    The 21 page one I did read was amazing and were it not so long I would print it out to share with my grandkids – VERY important and helpful info.

    Enjoy your weekend. Love, Gingy

    • Dear Gingy,
      Thank you for telling me that the links did not work. We will try again! Show me the Money” was really fun because it was a Bingo game and there were prizes.
