By Padmaja Sarathy

Get innovative strategies for developing and implementing a researched-based system for smooth transitions for preschool children with special needs and their families. "Together We Succeed" outlines a collaborative planning process for overcoming transition challenges with a child-family focused approach — and helps you effectively engage early childhood stakeholders in implementing the system.

Along with case examples, this guide provides easy-to-follow activities to support the system’s five components to help you actively involve school personnel, early intervention agencies and early childhood trainers. The activities address three major transitions for preschool children and their families: from early intervention services; while receiving preschool services; and from preschool to school-age services.

"Together We Succeed" provides:

  • Systemic strategies for effective transition planning and policies
  • Legal requirements for transition
  • Evaluation procedures to monitor the transition process
  • Ways to make transition a positive experience for everyone involved
  • And much more

Plus, with its structured activities and step-by-step directions to execute the activities, this resource serves as a valuable professional development tool for school districts, early intervention agencies and resource centers.
