Moving On: Planning Your Child's Transition from the Family, Infant and Toddler Project to Essential Early Education.
Vermont Early Childhood Work Group.
This booklet was designed to inform, guide and support parents of children with special needs during their child's transition from an early intervention program (birth through age 2) into a preschool early educational setting. The first part of the booklet focuses on how the transition process works, including a description of the people who might be involved in planning the transition, the parents' rights and role, and the steps that need to be taken to determine a child's eligibility for continued services. The second part of the booklet discusses the process of developing a child's Individualized Education Program (IEP). A transition checklist and a list of resources for more information is included at the end. (SG)
