By the time they leave early intervention, many children have gotten all the help they need and no longer need specialized services. Other children may still need some help to achieve their developmental milestones.
A transition plan helps each child and family move smoothly from early intervention to whatever comes next. Transition plan activities will be included in every IFSP for each child and family.
In Virginia, families have the option to transition their two-year-old children (i.e., age 24 months by 9/30 of that school year) from Part C early intervention services to Part B special education services. Part B eligibility may differ based on the local school system.
Your Service Coordinator will assist you through the transition process, discussing your options and helping you to enroll in the most appropriate program for your child.
