Transition from Part C to Preschool

Topic editor: Kathy Whaley

Most recent additions to this page:

There is a need to ensure seamless transitions for children and their families as they leave Part C and other early childhood programs, so they have timely access to appropriate services. Families need to move smoothly from one program or system to another, or among services within a program or system. State and local structures, policies, interagency agreements, personnel development processes, and other mechanisms must be in place to support the transition process.
