Transition Services

Transition services are activities completed when children are exiting out of early intervention and are transitioning to (1) preschool with the local school district (2) Head Start or (3) private preschool.

 

The IFSP Transition pages, which are included in the IFSP documents also outlines the transition process, and must be updated throughout the process.

 

Conversations with the family about transition begin at the initial IFSP meeting and continue only the child transition is completed.

 

The service coordinator is responsible for ensuring the transition steps are completed. The steps completed are documented on the IFSP Transition pages.
