Module 9: Development of the Transition Plan in Part C

Module 9: Development of the Transition Plan in Part C

As toddlers receiving early intervention services approach their third birthday, it’s time to start planning ahead for when they (and their families) leave the Part C system and move on to either Part B services or other appropriate programs or services.

Module 9 focuses on the development of a transition plan for the exiting toddler with disabilities. Its companion, Module 8, provides an overview to the transition process. You can use either module to provide training to others on Part C’s transition requirements.

Slideshow for Module 9

Trainer’s Guide | The trainer’s guide to Module 9 focuses on the content emphasized in the module—namely, the development of a transition plan for the exiting toddler with disabilities. Moving slide by slide, the trainer’s guide provides images of each slide, instructions for how to operate the slide (e.g., when to click to reveal more of the slide or to advance to the next slide), and an explanation of the content on the slide. The trainer’s guide is available in two formats, for your convenience:

Word | Trainer’s Guide for Module 9 (for accessibility)

Speaker’s Notes | We know from experience that many trainers find it helpful to have a Speaker’s Notes version of the slideshow. The Speaker’s Notes version shows each slide picture on the left and provides blank lines on the right (for taking notes). Use the Speaker’s Notes version for your own planning (it’s in Word, so you can add your own notes where the blank lines are) or share it with participants for their own taking of notes.
