Transition From First Steps to Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)

The period of time an infant/toddler is in First Steps is relatively short; therefore, it is important to plan for transition from the time the child enters First Steps.

Steps toward transitioning out of the First Steps program must be addressed at every Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) meeting, regardless of a child’s age.

The discussion of transition prepares the family for a smooth transition as their toddler leaves First Steps to attend a preschool, child care, Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) or other community program.  

The following documents have been developed to assist with educating service coordinators, providers and parents about the importance of a successful transition from First Steps.
