For Teens Only Helpful Resources Along the Way
The Kreamer Family Resource Center (KFRC), located on the main campus of Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, has several items that may be helpful in preparing teens for their eventual transition to adult health care. In addition, there are materials for teens with learning disabilities or developmental delay transitioning to higher education or to work.
Books may also be obtained from your local library
