Because NICHCY’s website will only remain online until September 30, 2014, most of its rich content has moved to a new home, the Center for Parent Information and Resources (CPIR), where it can be kept up to date.
The new address of Module 8: The Transition Process and Lead Agency Notification to the LEA and SEA at the CPIR is:
As toddlers receiving early intervention services approach their third birthday, it’s time to start planning ahead for when they (and their families) leave the Part C system and move on to either Part B services or other appropriate programs or services.
This module and its companion, Module 9, together take a detailed look at what the Part C regulations require in terms of the transition planning and activities that must occur. Module 8 includes:
- 1 slideshow presentation;
- a trainer’s guide explaining all the content;
- a Speaker’s Notes version of the slideshow; and
- handouts and activity sheets for participants.
Please help yourself! Download the components you need to learn on your own and/or to train others on the transition process from early intervention into other programs or services.
Files You’ll Need to Download
Trainer’s Guide | The trainer’s guide to Module 8 focuses on the content emphasized in the module—namely, an overview of the transition process and the lead agency’s notification to the child’s local educational agency and the State educational agency (SEA), as appropriate. Moving slide by slide, the trainer’s guide provides images of each slide, instructions for how to operate the slide (e.g., when to click to reveal more of the slide or to advance to the next slide), and an explanation of the content on the slide. The trainer’s guide is available in two formats, for your convenience:
PDF | Trainer’s Guide for Module 8 (44 pages)
Word | Trainer’s Guide for Module 8 (for accessibility)
Speaker’s Notes | We know from experience that many trainers find it helpful to have a Speaker’s Notes version of the slideshow. The Speaker’s Notes version shows each slide picture on the left and provides blank lines on the right (for taking notes). Use the Speaker’s Notes version for your own planning (it’s in Word, so you can add your own notes where the blank lines are) or share it with participants for their own taking of notes.
Pictures of individual slides in Module 8 | in PDF (7 pages)
Slideshow | The slideshow for Module 8 has 14 slides in total. The file is provided as a PowerPoint Show. Download the file to your computer. As a SHOW, the slideshow should launch automatically when you open the file and should operate as described in the Trainer’s Guide. If the slideshow doesn’t launch automatically but does open in PowerPoint itself, you’ll need to launch the presentation manually (by selecting to play the slideshow).
Handout for Participants | There’s only one handout associated with Module 8, and that’s Handout 9. It’s provided in PDF and Word formats. The PDF is designed to share with participants. The Word version is made available for those participants who need or request accessible materials.
Handout 9 | Transition to Preschool and Other Programs (IDEA’s verbatim regulations)
And there you have it, Module 8 on the Transition Process and Lead Agency Notification to the LEA and SEA! We wish you good luck with all your trainings!
