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

Prior to Age 14

It’s essential to start preparing for transition even before age 14. This is the time to:

  • Dream about and develop a vision for the future
  • Get organized
  • Promote self-determination and being as independent as possible
  • Identify individuals with expertise and connections that will help the student access high-quality educational and community resources 

The best practices described in this section provide a foundation for all the transition activities to come.

Form for recording progress toward best practices prior to age 14.
