This paper presents some of the findings of the first wave of a national longitudinal study on the transition of deaf young people from school to adult life. The baseline data were gathered on 184 year 11 deaf pupils across England over the course of 15 months. The findings presented focus on the range of activities provided to pupils as a part of the transition planning process, parental involvement in this process, pupils' school experiences, and pupils' and parents' expectations and aspirations about the future.
