Planning for transition assessment is a structured process for conducting transition assessment. Working through this process results in the team having a detailed, coordinated plan to guide all aspects of gathering transition assessment data and information. What is novel about actually planning before conducting transition assessment is that a multi-agency team:
- Crafts questions that guide the choices for transition assessment tools and methods
- Creates a plan to collaboratively gather transition assessment data to address the questions
- Coordinates to implement the plan for gathering, analyzing and summarizing the transition assessment data
Following this process makes it possible for the team to develop a multi-agency, multi-year transition plan. You will find transition assessment data is the foundation of the youth’s entire transition planning process.
