You can read families’ perspectives from families contained in the Beach Center’s Community of Practice. You may also like to read families' stories-four in English and one in Spanish.
Many state departments of education have developed guides that merge families’ and professionals’ perspectives and offer advice on successful transitions. These booklets describe the steps you can take to plan the transition planning conference, participate within the conference, and follow-up after the conference.
Because policies vary from state to state, determine if your state or local program has specific guidelines that are different from the ones in these booklets.
