NEC’s Transition Team Initiative (NEC-ITTI)

This training project incorporates evidence-based practices for teens and young adults who have combined vision and hearing loss, their families and educational team members. These practices promote future opportunities for greater independence and improved quality of life.

Transition planning for young adults who have combined vision and hearing loss requires an organized team approach, involving the student, family, and team members. NEC’s Transition Team Initiative will bring together families, professionals and agencies in order to complete the following:

 Step 1:  Meet with IEP/Transition Planning team; identify important team members and agencies; and develop  Person Centered Plan
              Develop Transition Plan and identify critical steps toward success

 Step 2:  NEC personnel will facilitate monthly sessions (virtual and/or face-to-face),  using guided tools and short webcast presentations

 Step 3:  Final face-to-face session
