New Jersey Transition to Adult Coordinated Care Program
Moving to adult care
Teens and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities face unique challenges as they transition to adult services and medical care. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) created The New Jersey Transition to Adult Coordinated Care program (NJTACC), an interdisciplinary specialty care team, to help families and patients through a comprehensive approach achieve a successful transition into adulthood.
Please note this is a specialty program and is not intended to replace primary care.
