Rosenkoetter, Sharon; Shotts, Cynthia
This manual is a guide for facilitating a 3-hour community interagency planning workshop on the transition of young children with disabilities and is comprised of a facilitator's manual, a participant's manual, and a preconference packet. The facilitator's manual provides a listing of necessary materials, a general workshop process checklist, a sample invitation letter, a meeting logistics checklist, a comprehensive family services list, and a form for identifying "movers and shakers." The next section provides a detailed workshop outline. Program evaluation materials complete the facilitator's manual. The participant's manual includes a variety of handouts organized into five sections: (1) issues in interagency collaboration; (2) possible solutions and getting people together; (3) current transition practices and plans for future work; (4) ongoing evaluation; and (5) resources. The preconference packet contains a transition planning self-assessment tool and a community needs survey form. A video is also intended to accompany use of these materials. (Contains 40 references.)
