Session Dates

Monday November 14, 2022 2:45 PM - 4:15 PM - Webinar


In this workshop, participants will learn about the importance of transition planning in helping students who are deaf and or hard of hearing to plan for and navigate the career road in effort to obtain and maintain competitive employment. Too often for youth who are deaf and hard of hearing, the career road is marked by detours as they are more apt to experience issues related to unemployment or underemployment as they attempt to enter and maintain employment in the workforce. This is despite a willingness to want to work competitively in the workforce after gaining the necessary education, training, and skills.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify and explain potential, future obstacles that students may encounter in the workforce as well as strategies to provide students to overcome those issues.
  • Describe the difference between entitlement and eligibility and how it affects a student’s future.
  • List secondary transition resources and organizations that will support their students.
