Age Appropriate Transition Assessment and Discovery

Discovery is a person centered planning approach that looks beyond the demonstrated skills in a typical work setting to see what skills and interests can be discovered by seeing the student perform everyday activities at home and in their community with neighbors and friends. Discovery tries to reveal the individual at their best, their unique talents and to find out their ideal conditions for employment, the environment that fits best for them and their support needs. There are opportunities for Discovery within the school day and strategies for collecting this information by the transition team and weaving it into the Age Appropriate Transition Assessment."
