Step 1: Transition Notification must be completed with the necessary child’s information and sent to the child’s parent. Parental consent is not required to send a copy of this letter to the LEA; however, other early intervention records provided to the LEA must have parental consent for release. A copy must be sent to the LEA and the Regional OCDD office. The FSC must keep a copy in the child’s record.
Step 2: The Transition Notification letter is sent to the family, a copy of the Early Steps Family Survey must be sent. The FSC is responsible for sending the Early Steps Family Survey along with the Early Steps Family Survey Cover Letter, which explains the process that the family must follow in order to complete the survey. The Early Steps Family Survey assists the state in measuring performance on Indicator #4 of the SPP.
