Babies Can't Wait - The Transition

Some children will leave BCW before or at age 3 years and participate in programs and activities with or without specialized assistance and services.  All children leaving BCW must have a plan for their “transition” from early intervention. The service coordinator will assist the family and serve as a link between BCW and whatever is to follow in order to ensure a smooth, seamless transition to other services or systems appropriate for the child and his/her family. This process begins at least six months prior to a child’s third birthday and enables the family to become familiar with their public preschool special education personnel, private preschool opportunities, Head Start and other options in their community.  As families prepare to leave BCW, their service coordinators make sure appropriate community referrals are made to programs within the health department and other agencies to assure health and other needs are addressed.
