Transition planning for many students with disabilities is not achieving the desired outcomes, nor is it meeting national mandates. Yet, the purpose of all educational programming is to produce well-educated adults who are prepared to meet society expectations for work and engagement in their communities. Students with disabilities who do not receive needed transition services often experience barriers and are not able to achieve equitable employment or community participation. A number of systematic and teacher preparation issues contribute to this gap in outcomes achievement. This chapter presents a case study of a transition-age deaf and hard of hearing student whose transition plan lacks important interagency collaboration, and appropriate postsecondary, employment, and independent living goals based on her preferences. This provides an opportunity for readers, through a series of guided questions and access to resources, to create an improved and high-quality transition plan.
