Transition policies and procedures ensure a smooth transition between the EI program under Part C and preschool services under Part B or other appropriate services for all infants and toddlers with disabilities under the age of three who have been receiving EI services and their families.
A "toddler that may be eligible for preschool services under Part B" means any toddler in the EI program at 27 months of age that has not yet achieved his/her IFSP developed functional outcomes determined by the IFSP team.
No later than six months prior to the child's third birthday, the Service Coordinator shall begin to communicate with the child's family about transition. If a toddler may be eligible for preschool services under Part B, the Service Coordinator, with parental consent, will transmit additional information to the LEA or other relevant agency to ensure continuity of services from the Part C program to the Part B program. The PA34 screen in Cornerstone should be updated as needed during transition.
