Understanding Early Start & Supporting Families
This presentation will begin with a basic overview of Early Start and Special Education, the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), the transition process and the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). It provides a foundation in understanding the transition steps as well as the similarities and differences between early intervention and special education programs.
First session designed for FIRST 5 Partners and Other Local Professionals.
In the second half, participants will discover insights, tools, and methods to collaborate with families that have a child with a known or suspected disability; understand parental grief; make use of community resources and PHP services; and work with parents who may have their own disabilities. The focus is fostering resiliency in these families and their young children.
Second session parents are also welcome.
