What are some ways to provide Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) to students without internet and/or computer access at home?

  • Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, meetings with Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) staff, and other Pre-ETS meetings can happen over the phone or in person if following required health protocols. Consider telecommunication relay services for phone calls as needed for deaf participants.
  • Download and share online transition resources in alternative formats (e.g. paper or flash drives) to share with students and families.
  • Discuss what students have learned through mail-in surveys and/or calls.
  • Partner with local access television to broadcast Pre-ETS lessons.
  • Identify programs to support deaf students’ access to technology
  • Provide a paper copy of the Deafverse Choose Your Future! Activity Kit to better understand the student’s communication needs, personalities traits and skills and develop self-determination.
  • Join our listserv to gather ideas from other professionals working with deaf students with limited access to internet and technology.
