How to Assess Your Needs
This is an exciting time for you. You are about to transition to the adult world. It is very important that you plan for this transition and use all the resources available to you during this planning time.
Your school staff-teachers, therapists, nurses and others are key people in helping you develop your school transition plan so that you can have services in place when you need them. This is a very big step and you will find it takes time to access each needed service or support. So planning ahead is a great idea.
Your answers to the following questions will help assess your service needs. You may skip the sections where you do not have concerns. Now we can begin to help you find your service resource options.
