In a survey of even “experienced” parents, a majority did not have a clear grasp of what should be happening during transition.
What is transition? This is the time when a child is a student, age 14 through leaving high school and (hopefully) ready for further education, college, or career. Teens are not clear either. Teachers of the Deaf/hard of hearing (TODs) often support preschool through high school as an itinerant service and thus are not always well-versed in specific transition IEPs, skills, assessments and knowledge.
Students, parents, and TODs need more information and support to learn how to make the most of transition for effective outcomes for teens.
Most of us say “if only I knew then what I know now…”
What are we doing to make transition more effective?
