This paper reports the results of Tucson, Arizona’s Community Outreach Program for the Deaf Transition Project for Hearing-Impaired Youth. The project is fully funded through the Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services project, and has as its primary goals:
- To develop a predictable referral system: school to adult services
- To develop specialized transition methods for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
- To develop techniques to train in life management and employment related skills.
- To create system change
This paper will propose a model for transitional planning and recommend system changes which could facilitate such planning and service delivery.
