READY Tool: Readiness Evaluation of Transition to Adulthood for Deaf-Blind Youth is an online resource from the National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB).  It is designed to help transition teams, composed of an individual who is deafblind, parents, and professionals, identify essential activities that should be carried out during the transition process from school to adult life. The completed tool can be used to generate a plan of action and develop goals and objectives for the IEP (Individualized Education Program) and transition plans.

The tool is divided according to age ranges:
  • Prior to age 14
  • Age 14-17
  • Age 18-21
  • Age 22-26

Each section includes the following:

  • Transition Assessment
  • Transition-Related Education Programming
  • Team Collaboration/Team Adjustments

There are links to numerous activities, checklists, and other documents to support teams of students who are deafblind.

A form for recording progress towards best practices is available to download for free in PDF format in each of the sections.
