Description: Children who receive intensive ABA services through early intervention or preschool services present with different needs as they prepare to transition to kindergarten, particularly in a public school setting. This presentation will review early intervention transition practices as children prepare for kindergarten via case study review. So that children can be successful, appropriate planning is necessary so that the supports and services are available as they transition to kindergarten. This is related to the required state and federal regulations developed from IDEA '04 and is designed with information and recommendations for parents and teachers to support the transition process. Presentation will be via individual case review.
Learning Objectives: 1. Identify strengths and needs related to individual student cases for transition to school. 2. Select evidence-based practices to utilize for transition and to recommend for the school-age program for individual students. 3. Identify and utilize collaborative practices which can be used when working with schools.
Activities: Workshop objectives will be met through lecture, discussion(small group), case study with guided practice, and group discussion. Supplemental materials will be provided to support participant learning.
Audience: Participants should have a basic understanding of applied behavior analysis programs and an understanding of school based services.
