Toolkit B - The Next Step
is a resource for workers working with young people with TBI
transitioning from children’s services to adult services.
It has been designed to be used with young people.
A core idea in the kit is The Transition Wheel.
The Transition Wheel is a tool for helping a young person
to identify areas of their life where they could gain further independence.
The Transition Wheel allows the young person,
with the assistance of a support worker or their case manager if they have one,
to concentrate on the areas of their life that are currently
the most important to them. It initiates realistic goal setting
and forms part of the young person’s rehabilitation plan.
Transition involves the young person, the family, service providers
and case manager - the kit provides information on their roles in transition.
The kit also includes resources that highlight the issues that young people
need to think about before they leave school and as they proceed through early adulthood.
