PLANNING


• Need for specialized services, materials, and equipment • Assistive Technology


• If your child does not qualify for specialized services after age 3, the final IFSP will identify other community services after exit from the early intervention system.


During the transition planning process, your school district must follow certain timelines and procedures in assessing your child, determining eligibility, writing a plan (IEP), and beginning services. This chart gives a detailed summary of the process.

In addition to services through your local school district and/or Regional Center of Orange County, you may also want to access resources available within the community. The team can assist you in identifying those resources. You may also contact Comfort Connection Family Resource Center for support and information at (714) 558-5400.


The Transition Planning Conference/IFSP has been held and a Transition Plan developed.


Completing The Transition Process


There are different ways to deliver services to children. School programs focus on the whole child and provide services and support that promote social as well as educational development.


Are there opportunities for your child to be with typically developing children?

What is the size of the class or type of service?


How does the teacher keep in touch with the family? (notebook, phone call, home visits, email, text, etc.)
