READY Tool: Readiness Evaluation of Transition to Adulthood for Deaf-Blind Youth

Transition Assessment

1.1 Support the vision for the future

Coordinates with offices for vocational rehabilitation (VR) and developmental disability (DDS) services to ensure that all applicable assessments are completed, including orientation and mobility and assistive technology evaluations. Share all medical documentation, school-based assessment reports, IEP goals, relevant services and supports, assistive technology needs, interpreter or intervener supports and any other pertinent records.

1.2 Advocate for needs and accommodations

Clearly document the individual’s needs, preferences, accommodations, motivations, interests, dreams, and learning styles. The family should gather as much information as possible from the school system to facilitate the transition process.
