Transition Planning

"It is essential that school districts and individual schools establish procedures to support collaborative consultation in the transition into and from the school system" (Ministry of Education, 1995). In the life of the Deaf and/ or Hard of Hearing children, this is even more necessary. Below are significant transition points for DHH students:

  1. Entry into Kindergarten
  2. Elementary to Secondary
  3. Exit from Secondary (Postsecondary Communication Access Services)
  4. Mainstream into a PRP Program
  5. PRP Program into Mainstream
