Transition Health Care Checklist

by Mary Mazzoni on February 4, 2012

It’s a whole lot more than just a checklist.

And it tackles much more than health care.

This informative guide and planning tool supports teens and families on every step of the transition journey. What’s more, it approaches transition from a whole-person perspective. Health, education, recreation, self advocacy, employment and financial/legal matters are addressed.

Developed by the PA Department of Health and the PA Community of Practice on Transition, this valuable tool is available as a free download.

Skill inventory and planning timeline

The document includes a transition skill inventory that emphasizes self determination skills such as understanding personal interests, strengths and needs. Skills related to wellness, safety, self care and advocacy, employment, community participation and postsecondary education are also included.

A general timeline is suggested for key transition steps.

Resources and links

There are resource pages and links on a wide variety of transition topics from health insurance to social security, government agencies, assistive technology and much more. Clear language and simple format make the document user-friendly.

Some links are specific to Pennsylvania. But you’ll find much of the information truly helpful no matter where you live.
