Transition: DEC Recommended Practices.
Bruder, Mary Beth; Chandler, Lynette K.
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood concerning the process of transition in early intervention and early childhood special education programs for infants and young children with special needs and their families. An introductory section defines transition, offers examples of types of transition, and notes that the type of planning and practices that are employed can influence the success of transition and satisfaction with the transition process by all concerned. Several components which influence the success of transition are addressed, including state and local agencies, sending and receiving program providers, families and other caregivers, and children. Other issues that must be addressed in order to facilitate transitions are also noted, including administrative support for planning, personnel training, and evaluation of the transition process. Twenty-two recommended practices for transition are then listed. (JDD)
