The transition from Early Intervention to Preschool Special Education Services can create feelings of excitement and uncertainty. Starting around your child’s second birthday your child’s Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) team, which includes you as the parent/guardian, will begin to develop a plan for transitioning your child from Early Intervention services to Special Education Preschool Services or other appropriate services. The plan will include timelines that will map out the transition process. A Parent’s Guide to the Infant-Toddler and Preschool Programs has lots of information that can help you prepare for this transition. The table below may help everyone involved with this transition to understand the process so that it is as smooth as possible.
