Version: Feburary 8, 2012
We have developed a variety of fidelity and quality improvement tools for working with community transition sites in the implementation and sustaining of the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) model. The NNYT toolkit assists sites in building on the strengths of their agencies, while ensuring that the transition system is effective in improving the progress and outcomes of youth and young adults with emotional/behavioral difficulties (EBD) -- and its responsiveness to their families.
A given site does not need to use all of these tools; rather, we guide sites in selecting tools that can meet their current program development and fidelity assessment needs as cost-effectively as possible. Some tools are less resource demanding (e.g., administered locally at relatively low cost), while others require more external assessment and data analyses (e.g., fidelity for Site Certification is conducted by two NNYT Certified Transition Fidelity Assessors).
The following fidelity and quality improvement tools are available for use at sites where NNYT faculty are actively collaborating with sites on implementing and sustaining transition programs or on the assessment of their transition sites.
