EI to ECSE Transition

IDEA requires that children taking part in Early Intervention (EI), a program designed to support infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities, who will participate in preschool special education, experience a smooth and effective transition and that by their third birthday an IEP has been developed and is being implemented.

To create a seamless transition for children and families, Rhode Island has developed shared policies and procedures that highlight both EI and ECSE’s responsibilities relative to the transition period.
