Thanks to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), children with special needs are entitled to a "free and appropriate" public education. For parents of kids with autism spectrum disorders, navigating the transition from Early Intervention (EI) services, which provide support for children roughly up to age 3, into preschool, can be made easier by learning about the process and good preparation. In the second of the NYU Langone Child Study Center's series of Autism Spectrum Disorders Family Workshops, held once a month at the CSC in winter and spring 2012 and open to all families free of charge, Sarah Kern, LMSW, discusses the transition from Early Intervention to the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE). She includes the differing goals of the two programs, the city departments involved, and a detailed overview of the CPSE evaluation process, which results in an IEP (Individualized Education Program) for your child. This workshop was held on February 28, 2012 at the NYU Langone Child Study Center.

A role play of an IEP meeting, created for EDSS 541 at CSU San Marcos - Single Subject Credential Program BEST PRACTICES DURING MEETING 1. Be mindful of the seating assignment. Avoid an “Us vs Them” Positioning. Round table seating in a comfortable setting, free from noise and distractions. 2. Make sure all people are introduced. 3. A written agenda is visible to all participants, on paper or posted. Make ideas shared at meeting visible (white board, overhead projector…). 6. Begin the meeting by reviewing the strengths of the child and focus on the positive aspects of the family and student throughout the meeting. 19. Ask parents to make comments if they are quiet.- Ask for parents ideas directly, rather than simply telling them to feel free to contribute. - Respect their opinions and perspectives as their own, even if they differ from yours. o Use validating statements such as “That is an interesting idea/observation” or “You really know your child well!” 24. Closing remarks – Provide a “debrief” - Does anyone have something he/she would like to say before we close for today? - How do we feel about today’s meeting – anything we should do differently next time? 25. The meeting ends on a positive note, and participants are thanked for their time and contributions CAST Kristen Harker Assistant Principal Shelby Winkelman Alex Caleb Golston Joe, Alex’s Father Renee Marquis Mia, Alex’s Mother Henry Brooks Special Education Teacher Tia D’Asaro Math Teacher Megan Amely Language Arts Teacher Michael Eiben Notetaker Dylan Boggs School Psychologist VIDEOGRAPHER Mark Rauscher EDITOR Mark Rauscher

In this video, six parents of children with disabilities and special health care needs share their top tips on school and school transitions for their child with a disability or special health care need. Each parent offers a unique and thoughtful tip that has worked to ease educational transitions. Transcript of Video: (Tara) Any time that you are transitioning into a new classroom and particularly a new school, always go ahead of time. Typically the very first day of school, it's so chaotic and all of the kids are running around so it's extremely confusing for our kiddos. So if you go a week in advance you're able to meet the teachers, they actually have time to talk to you, you can show your child their classroom, their locker, let them get acquainted with it, let them practice on their lockers, whatever they need to do. (Cindy) Your child for early intervention is being served in natural environments. With the school system, though, they're transitioning into those school buildings -- and that is a culture shock, so you have to have a lot of trust in the school system to be able, to be able to do that. But, I think the more that you can go to workshops or conferences to gain that confidence. And I think that's really the biggest thing, is to gain that confidence that you have things to convey about your child. The school cannot possibly know all those things about your family so you have to be the one to be able to be confident enough to go forward and tell the school that. (Jacquie) The one thing that I think is so very, very important for any transition, the thing is to start early. If you know that transition is coming you want to start early, you want to ask a lot of questions, find out all you can and you want to know what your options are, so you want to really study that. (Erica) Well, when your child transitions from early intervention to public schools, the key to anything, to a better education, is probably communication with the teachers and the staff that take care of your child. I use a form that was developed at the Center for Learning and Leadership and the Oklahoma Family Network, and the form is "How My Day Went." It's easy for the teachers to use and the staff, and it's written in first person like, "I ate, I played" so you know exactly how your kid spent the day at the school. This is a lifesaver, I mean it was the best thing that could happen because I was very anxious. I mean it's your child and she is going away for eight hours. I think this is one of the best tips I can provide to parents. (Heather) One of the most important things I think in preparing for a child's IEP is, we always request the proposed goals from his teachers and his therapists prior to, so we have time to review those goals and make any comments or suggestions that we have and just to make sure that we are all on the same page. Another thing that we always do for my son, for his IEPs, is we prepare a one-pager. It's just real simple, it's just, you know, like three or four paragraphs just talking about his medical diagnosis, kind of how we got to where we are, what his interests are. And we also include pictures of things that he likes to do, so that's always helpful, especially if you have new teachers or new therapists that are working with him. Another thing that I always love to do is take someone with me, whether that be my husband or a friend or a private therapist. Just to kind of help me through that meeting and sometimes they hear things that I don't necessarily hear because I'm a little bit more emotionally involved in that. Those are my three suggestions for preparing for and developing your child's IEP. (Wanda) One of the most important things that I had to learn when my daughter was going into the public school was when they told me she would ride the school bus. Oh, I went into anxiety overload. And I made myself step back and think about my other two kids. I remember when they were younger and they would see the school bus, and they wanted to ride that school bus. Why wouldn't my, my daughter with disabilities, why wouldn't Kayla want to ride the bus just like all the other kids? So I told the school, I said, "What about, she's not going to sit still?" Cuz' in a car she's buckled. And then they told me about this vest seatbelt that they had, and they showed it to me and I thought, "Ah! That will do it! That will work." I went to the school and said, "What about if she goes into adrenal crisis?" and the school said, "Well, what if we let one of her Paras, one of her teacher's aids from her class ride home with her?" because that Para is going to be trained on her medical condition. So, all the things I had concerns about I told the school and they helped me work through those so Kayla got to ride the bus. It was a good day for me.

By Emily Helmboldt An increasing number of individuals with ASD are now entering high school and transitioning to adulthood. For the student with ASD to have a successful transition to adulthood, thorough and systematic planning and preparation is required. Transition planning must begin long before the student enters high school. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the research regarding the outcomes of adults with ASD and will discuss the primary areas of concern for this group, including employment, residential living, social interactions, and community integration. There will be special emphasis on various case studies of Project SEARCH, outcomes as well as the VCU-RRTC supported employment program for young adults with ASD. Ms. Helmboldt will discuss how to determine the student’s curriculum and prioritize skills through assessment and transition planning using an ecological approach. Further, training resources for transition staff, family and individuals will be offered. https://rrtc.vcu.edu/

Appropriate classroom placement for students with autism spectrum disorder is a difficult task given the spectrum of abilities and deficits these student's possess. In order to select an appropriate placement, one must consider communication, social skill and behavioral needs of each individual student. Placement decisions require a team approach that includes administrators, teachers, related service providers and parents. Henrico County Public Schools, in partnership with VCU-ACE, are piloting a guidance document that defines the student's current skill level in relation to determining classroom placement. This webcast will outline this guidance document on classroom placement for the student with ASD and describe the team model established by Henrico County Public Schools to effectively use the document. https://rrtc.vcu.edu/

If you’d like to receive our Episode 64 bonus PDF on the Behavior Intervention Plan, click this link http://tensigma.org/episode64bonus In this short video, we will discuss the behavior intervention plan or BIP, who is involved in writing them, and some best practice tips for writing a BIP. A behavior intervention plan is written using information gathered from the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA). The purpose of a BIP is to use behavior intervention strategies to create a series of specific steps to help a student learn new behavior skills. Here are a few important points to remember about the Behavior Intervention Plan: • They are written using information gathered from the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), which identify the function or purpose behind the child’s behaviors. • They address behaviors that disrupt the child’s learning or the learning of others • Describe what the behavior is, the reasons it occurs, and interventions to address the behavior • They can be written for any disability area, if learning is impacted by behavior. Some sources for information for a BIP include parents/caregivers, the student, teachers, school psychologists, administrators, and others who know the student well. In order to develop an effective BIP, the entire IEP should be involved in the process to collect data across settings, examine, and use the data effectively. Here is a quick summary of some of the important elements that need to be included in the behavior intervention plan: • Naming the targeted behaviors and describe them • Baseline data including things like frequency, duration, intensity • The behavior that will be taught to replace the targeted behavior including who will teach the new skills • A plan for reinforcing the new behavior • Consequences if the targeted behavior continues • An assessment of the BIP including how the team will know it is working and how they will collect data to show the improvements Here are some best practice tips for writing a BIP: • Look at systems that are already in place for data collection – including things like data around behavior that could be collected from office referrals • Look for special education templates that may be available and use them as a guide for data collection • Collect data in a variety of settings possibly including classrooms, buses, passing periods, lunch, etc. • Analyze the data and look for patterns including who is involved in the behavior (preventing or making it worse), why does the behavior pattern happen, when and where does the behavior occur, when does it not occur and why, what environment is the student in and how does it contribute to the behavior, what does the student gain from the behavior (attention, work avoidance, perceived power, etc.), and how long does it last • Think simple and step-by-step • Continually evaluate and update the BIP • Can be written as narratives, forms, or charts • Parents/caregivers can and whenever possible should be involved in providing reinforcements for positive behavior As part of each episode of Transition Tuesday, we provide additional tips, teacher tools, and resources related to the topics we cover. For this week’s bonus, Ten Sigma is providing a pdf that contains links to resources regarding behavior intervention plans, which you can access by clicking the link at the top of this description.

The Alberta government is working with youth and their families in planning for the transition from child disability services (Family Support for Children with Disabilities) to adult disability services (Persons with Developmental Disabilities, AISH, etc). The goals of the transition planning process are to ensure that youth and their families are aware of the adult supports and services that will be available to them; that they have the information they need to plan ahead and make decisions; and that families and service providers are working together to arrange for the necessary supports to be in place when the youth turns 18.
