Transition Consultations

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Outreach offers a free-of-charge Transition Consultation, which is available to any Wisconsin student with a documented hearing loss. This consultation includes an on-site visit to the student's school district from the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Outreach Transition Coordinator.

The Transition Coordinator will assess the student’s transition-related needs through:

  • Interviews with the student, family and educational staff
  • Informal evaluation of readiness skills
  • Interest inventories (preferences, experiences, goals)

Following the consultation, a written summary will be provided. The summary will include:

  • Recommendations for effective transition planning
  • Suggested goals, activities and strategies
  • Specific transition resources that match the student’s needs
