A group of 100 adults and 190 youth who have cerebral palsy (CP), spina bifida (SB), and acquired brain injuries from childhood (ABIc) participated in a multi-method study focused on the transition to adult health care. The results show that 95\% of youth and 61\% of adults were living with their parents; 23\% of the youth and 55\% of adults were employed; and 60\% of youth and 42\% of adults reported "excellent" or "very good" health. The lowest health scores were reported by adults with SB. These findings provide a starting point for examining health issues specific to youth and young adults with CP, SB, and ABIc.
