Guidelines for Early Childhood Transition to School For Children with Special Needs

The Protocol for Early Childhood Transition to School for Children with Additional Support Needs are based on the belief that those who know children with special needs well, their families, preschool service providers and support agencies, are the most effective people to work with school personnel to ensure a successful transition into the school system.

A carefully planned transition provides parents with an opportunity to participate as equal partners in the transition process and facilitates the child’s entry to the school.

Planning should begin at least one year prior to school entry and may involve:

  • parents
  • A children’s disability services worker from Families Services and Labour
  • school division personnel
  • Early Learning and Child Care Centre Director
  • Regional Health Authority Worker or Pulic Health Nurse
