Minnesota Transition Guide for Teachers of Deaf/Hard of Hearing

Download MN Transition Guide for Teachers of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing [PDF]

The Transition Guide was created as a pilot project for the school year 2012 – 2013. It is meant to give guidance in the area of transition for Deaf or Hard of Hearing students. We are asking teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to try it out with students who are transition-aged and provide feedback.

This guide is designed to be a resource for schools and other agencies involved in the lives of transition-aged students in Minnesota who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is intended to be utilized, at the latest, during grade 9 to assist parents and service providers in the early planning for transition from school programs to employment or postsecondary education.
