The process of transition for a child with disabilities at age 3 and their family is the focus of this session. Participants explore strategies that service providers can use to support families and ensure smooth transitions between infant/toddler services and preschool services (early intervention and preschool special education services, early care and education, and other preschool programs). In the video, Transition at Age 3, the families' experiences of these changes and how providers work together, despite differences among systems (such as early intervention and preschool special education and Early Head Start and Head Start), are shared. Session activities provide an opportunity for participants to consider specific strategies to promote best practices before, during, and after a child's transition at age 3.
