Transition: From Home or Early Intervention Services to Preschool Special Needs
Arizona Department of Education
Transition is movement or change without interruption. It should be a smooth flow from one place or condition to another. While the transition plan for a student receiving special education services is designed to prepare him or her for life after high school, transition can start when a child enters preschool. The first of six distinct stages of transition is home or early intervention services to preschool special needs. For a child who has been receiving services through the Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP), transition to preschool services needs to be considered. This brief describes the factors necessary for making the transition from early intervention services to preschool services easier. A list of books and organizations for further information is included.
