Transition Process: Age 3

From Early Intervention to District Services

Families with children eligible for continued special education and related services after their child's third birthday will work with their Family Resources Coordinator and IFSP Team on a "transition" to the School District or other community programs.

"Transition is the process of moving from Early Intervention services to the services, people, places and activities” appropriate for your child's development at age three. Transition services are determined based on the individual needs of your child and family.

Some children have progressed in their development and will not need a formal transition conference because they will not need special education and related services (IDEA Part B) from the school district. If so, your Family Resources Coordinator (FRC) and Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) team can help you identify other community and early learning options available to your family."
