TRANSITION NOTICE

 

Dear <Name of Parent or Legal Guardian>:


Your child will turn three years old soon, and may be eligible for preschool special education.  If your child is found eligible for preschool special education, you have two choices: 

It is possible that your child will not meet the criteria for preschool special education.  In this case, your child’s EIP services will end the day before your child turns three years old.  Your service coordinator will help you plan the next steps for your family.


Only the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) of your local school district can decide if your child is eligible for preschool special education.

 

This notice tells you about the steps you, the Early Intervention Program, and the CPSE must take to find out if your child meets the criteria for preschool special education.  These steps include:

If your child is not evaluated by the CPSE and is not found eligible for services by the CPSE before your child turns three years old, your child’s EIP services will end the day before your child turns three years old

Please read this carefully.  Your service coordinator can answer any questions you may have. 

Remember, the CPSE must decide if your child is eligible before your child turns three years old, to be sure that your child gets the services s/he needs.
