Transition can be a challenging time in a family’s Early Intervention experience. It takes teamwork to successfully walk with a family through the adjustment from one program to another. By knowing the strengths and expertise of all the team members including the parent, you can maximize the potential for a positive experience. Transition should be viewed as a process rather than a specific event. The process should begin early to promote and ensure continuity of service(s) and provide families with a seamless system of Early Intervention. It is critical that transition planning be embedded in the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)/Individualized Education Program (IEP) supports and services for all eligible children and families.
