Complete Description

Transition to adulthood can seem overwhelming and confusing for everybody involved. The READY Tool: Readiness Evaluation of Transition to Adulthood for Deaf-Blind Youth (which is available free, online) helps transition teams (including youths and families) determine the essential activities to be carried out during the transition process for a student. It was designed to reflect current quality practices, and includes information that would be useful for all youth going through the transition process. The tool is divided into four age ranges and three areas. Resources are provided for each age range and area combination, so that teams can select priorities for intervention based on evaluation results. The completed tool can be used to generate an action plan, as well as develop goals and objectives for IEP and transition plans. This webinar will provide an overview of the tool so that participants will feel confident exploring it further on their own.
