By 2 ½ years of age, children and their families receiving Early Intervention services (IDEA 2004- Part C) begin the transition process to determine if the child is eligible for Early Childhood Special Education services (IDEA 2004- Part B) beginning at age three. This state-developed, standardized, and collaboratively-delivered training focuses on the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), Illinois State Board of Education, and Illinois Department of Human Services to provide a smooth and effective transition for children and their families. Join parents and professionals in early intervention, community care and education, and early childhood public education, to explore the requirements and effective strategies for this transition process. Elements of this process, including transition meetings, role responsibilities, timelines, state forms, vital partnerships and collaborative relationships, will be addressed.
