Transition from Early Intervention into a Preschool Program.
Focus Flyer, n6 Jan 1995
This brief informational flyer presents practical information on the transition from an early intervention program into a preschool program for parents and teachers of young children who are deaf blind. It provides information on: (1) the laws that affect a child with disabilities when he/she turns 3 years of age; (2) the transition process from early intervention to a preschool program; and (3) preparations for agencies and families to assist in building a collaborative transition program. It also delineates steps for a smooth transition, from identifying options available, to selecting a program and sharing information. Sample "best" and "worst" scenarios illustrate the guidelines, and specific responsibilities of the family, the receiving program, and the sending program are charted. A checklist for local agencies coordinating services is also provided as are a few suggestions from parents to other parents. (DB)
