Annotation: This report describes the process of identifying the evidence base for transition strategies and developing and piloting specific tools in a toolkit designed for educators and others who will help students with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) develop transition plans as part of their individualized education program (IEP). The report describes the process of developing the toolkit from start to finish, including the training of users and evaluation of the final product. Most of the tools discussed in the report are informal assessments that address the particular needs of students who have challenges in executive function, memory, self-awareness, and motivation.
