Survey - how can we make transition easier?

About the STARS-project
The project will develop a range of resources to use with young people with learning disability preparing to leave education, that will equip you with the skills and knowledge you require to make a successful transition to adult life.

The survey
Sincere thanks for agreeing to help us with this project!
The information you provide through this survey will help us to create training materials and other resources to help teens and young adults with learning difficulties/disabilities prepare for the big move to adulthood. This may include resources to help prepare for further education/school, getting a job, moving homes, getting around in the community, or getting along with others.  This is your chance to tell us what’s important, and the best way to get you and/or your young person the information.

Where possible, these surveys should be completed by the young person, or with as much input from him or her as possible. In many instances, this will require a carer or other adult to complete the survey with the young person, explaining questions and responses along the way. In the event that the young person is not able to respond or contribute, a parent or carer may respond on behalf of the young person, but please be sure this is reflected in the survey by selecting the appropriate option to question 2.

Thank you for taking your time to finish the survey!
