Beginning the Journey I & II: An AI Presentation

Please join our AI presenter at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. EST.

Beginning the Journey I
Each child grows at an individual pace, but research shows that a child’s first three years are the most important time for learning. Early Intervention (EI) is a key step in helping eligible infants and toddlers, from birth to three years of age, onto the right path to learn and develop to their full potential. This presentation educates families of infants and toddlers birth to 18 months, or those children just qualifying for EI services, on the nuts and bolts of developing, in partnership with Early Intervention providers, an Individualized Family Support Plan (IFSP).

Beginning the Journey II
What happens after the 3rd birthday and your child transitions from Early Steps (Part C of IDEA) to the local school system (Part B of IDEA)? In this presentation, we will go over step by step what to expect when your child, if eligible, transitions out of Early Steps with their Individualized Family Support Plan (IFSP) and into the school system/Pre-K with their first Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

Pero, ¿qué sucede después del tercer cumpleaños y la transición de su hijo de los primeros pasos al sistema escolar?
