Transition. Project Prepare: Competency-Based Personnel Preparation in Early Childhood Education Modules.
Pisarchick, Sally E.; And Others
One of nine competency-based training modules for personnel preparation in early childhood special education, this guide focuses on the facilitation of transition services for young children. All modules are adaptable for use with a general audience, direct service personnel, or administrators and are based on the following principles: developmentally appropriate practice; integration of children with disabilities with typically developing peers; collaborative relationships with families; attention to individual needs; and provision for and valuing of diversity among young children and their families. Modules are intended to be used in whole or in part, in groups or for self-instruction. Each module comprises goals; competencies (knowledge, skill, and values and attitudes); and objectives, with a matrix for each objective identifying enabling activities, resources, and leader notes. Relevant handouts, forms, and readings are provided for each objective. This module provides participants with four major goals: (1) understand the concept and implications of transition; (2) understand transition as both a practice and a process in early childhood and early childhood special education; (3) become familiar with model transition programs; and (4) advocate for best practices.
