This slide show provides an overview of a systematic approach to early childhood transitions.The target audience is staff working with families who have young children transitioning from one educational setting or service provider to another.
The information provided applies to early childhood transitions in general, but also includes specific information pertaining to the transition from Early Steps (Part C) to School Districts (Part B) or other community services. It includes valuable resources to help families and staff through transition processes.
The items in this checklist represent components of the interagency agreement that your team should discuss at least annually, at one of the periodic mee5tings you have scheduled after the implementation of the agreement. Partners should bring to the meeting the data that is outlined in your interagency agreement, relevant to the Part C to Part B transition for children younger than 3 years of age, and any other information for the agreement in general.
This booklet was developed by Florida's Transition Project to assist collaborative, interagency community teams to make decisions regarding transition policies and procedures for infants, young children, and their families. The resulting policies and procedures are the basis for a comprehensive, community-wide transition system.
