Transition from School to Work.
Milner, Eileen R.
Focus Flyer, n7 Jan 1995
This brief informational flyer presents practical information on the transition from school to work for students who are deaf-blind or have other severe disabilities. After defining transition, the flyer offers guidelines on: the age at which transition services should be started, areas that should be considered in a coordinated transition plan, identification of target activities, responsible personnel for transition planning, the Individualized Transition Plan (ITP) and the Individualized Education Program meeting, and participants in the ITP meeting. Transition procedures are discussed in terms of six steps: (1) develop a plan; (2) schedule a meeting and contact participants; (3) identify the needs, preferences, and interests of the student; (4) conduct the transition meeting (specific suggestions for conducting the meeting are offered); (5) implement the ITP; and (6) develop an employment resume. The flyer closes with a list of 10 steps for successful transition. (DB)
