Transition - Facilitating for DHH StudentsThe purpose of this book is to help professionals, students, and families become familiar with how to develop and implement individual transition plans for students who are deaf of hard of hearing. The knowledge gained from reading and using the materials provided in this book will increase the reader’s ability to meet the transition mandates of the Individuals with Disabilities Act Amendments of 1997.

Because we live in an era of constant change, the technological and societal demands on young people who are deaf or hard of hearing are greater than ever before. These students need systematic instruction and careful planning in making transitions that are as smooth as possible. Consequently, transition planning is now a critical component of every student’s education.

Readers will have a better understanding of how to work in partnership with students, families, and professionals to develop appropriate transition plans and effective plans of study, which will in the long run help individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing reach their maximum potential and lead fulfilling adult lives.
