Event Description

Transitional-aged youth (with and without developmental disabilities) experience multiple challenges around the time of transfer from paediatric to adult-care. The Good 2 Go Transition Program (The Hospital for Sick Children) is a consultation-style program that supports youth in transition and their parents and families, and the health care and community providers who support them, to ensure a seamless and individualized transition into adult care. Resources to support transition- and transferplanning will be reviewed in an informative and interactive manner.

Dr. Khush Amaria is a Clinical Psychologist in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at the Hospital for Sick Children. Dr. Amaria completed a two-year specialized clinical-research health psychology, post-doctoral fellowship held at SickKids, followed by a 1-year research associate position in the Chronic Pain Program, Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine. In her current role, Dr. Amaria serves as Team Lead for the Good 2 Go Transition Program and works to build evidence-based practices that support the transition and empowerment of youth through, both their own development, and the health care system. This includes leading Adolescent Medicine’s Transition Clinic—an outpatient program that provides treatment and support to adolescents struggling with transitions issues. As a psychologist with competency in treating the clinical and health psychology needs of children, adolescents and adults, Dr. Amaria provides and supervises the provision of evidence-based treatment of psychological and socioemotional difficulties, while also promoting the role of Good 2 Go resources and evaluating their impact on patients throughout SickKids.

Megan Henze is an Occupational Therapist and a member of the Good 2 Go team in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children. Megan completed her masters in occupational therapy in 2009. Megan has worked primarily with young people with physical disabilities in supporting transitions from paediatric service providers to adult service providers and in the development of life skills. In her current role in the Good 2 Go Transition Program, she works to build evidence-based practices that support the transition of youth with special health care needs to the adult health care system. She has a strong interest in strengthening communities that support adolescents with chronic conditions and is passionate about working with youth to help them develop life skills and achieve their goals.
