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.

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.
