Our Next Step - The Transition Process from Early Intervention Services at Age Three is a family training that guides families through the transition process from Part C of IDEA to Part B special education pre-school. This training was developed—in both English and Spanish—by Washington’s parent training and information center, called Partnerships for Action Voices for Empowerment (PAVE). It is designed by families for families and is intended to be used with the participant manual that can be downloaded from PAVE’s Web site.
