Planning Today Creating Tomorrow: A Guide to Transition.
Steveley, Janet D.; Houghton, Joan; Goehl, Karen S.; Bailey, Brent R.
This booklet provides information designed for individuals who are involved in the transition planning process both for persons with deaf-blindness and for persons with other disabilities. The purpose of the guide is to introduce common misperceptions encountered during transition planning, components of transition planning, and the transition planning process. The first section of the guide presents common misperceptions based on the collective experiences of educators who have participated in transition planning for students over the years. The following section identifies general considerations and common transition issues when beginning transition planning, including thinking about the person, exploring all options, learning to work as a team, and sharing responsibility among team members. A general step-by-step process to transition planning is then presented, along with examples of plans developed for two women with vision and hearing losses who returned home to Indiana after attending schools out of state. Appendices include resource information, checklists, the transition plan with a map with timelines for the two women, and a transition mobile with instructions. A glossary of common terms used during transition planning is included. (CR)
