Do people: Know how I learn best and how this will be supported when I move into different settings such as Independent Living, work placements? Give me opportunities to tell others about what I am interested in and what is important to me so they can match my skills and interests with the kind of life I want or the kind of work I would like to try?  M learning assessment model  Link to learning style o Visual to Busbi video, photographs, sat nav o Auditory to mp3, sat nav o Kinaesthetic to Nintendo DS, netbook  Visual CV  This is me cooking clips  This is me working clips Model for embedding mobile learning into person centred planning

What next?Do I know how I will be supported to make the transition to independent living or work and what ongoing support will I need? Am I consulted about the support I need to make the jump from college to an independent life or job? Who will work with me to work out what ongoing support I will need? Will others take seriously what I want for my life or work when finding me opportunities?
