RI – Navigating Early Education Transitions in Rhode Island

How care teams and parent leaders can promote a child’s successful transition from early intervention to special education

In Rhode Island, infants and toddlers (0-3) who are at risk for a developmental delay may qualify for Early Intervention (EI) services. In-home EI Specialists develop and follow an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) that is designed to address the unique social, behavioral, and skill-based needs of the child. At age three, all children enrolled in EI are reassessed to determine whether they qualify for services through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 Plan when they go to school (PreK-12). Use this tool to help families problem-solve during this high-stakes transition!

  • an increase in family engagement with well-child visits; and
  • reliable detection of, and responses to, health-related social needs disclosed by families. 

Read the paper lead-authored by MaryCatherine Arbour here, as well as a companion blog post published by the Center for the Study of Social Policy.
