Supporting Children and Families Transitioning Out of Early Intervention (WEB19088)

Presenter(s): Mary Louise Peters, MEd, MS
Course Description

Transitioning out of early intervention services can be confusing for families and professionals who support them; the process is often fraught with misconceptions about requirements, entrenched practices, and emotional reactions. In this session, speaker Mary Louise Peters discusses the regulations related to transitioning out of IDEA Part C services and identifies evidence-based, family-centered, and responsive practices that can help SLPs effectively collaborate with young children, their families, and other professionals for smooth and successful transitions. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”
