Re-evaluation and transition

Now that you're getting the services, think ahead to the next steps.

These are two things to be ready for:

The Re-evaluation

  • EI will evaluate your child again after 1 year (or 6 months if your child got short-term services).

  • This will tell you if your child still qualifies. If they do, you will keep getting services. You'll review the IFSP and sign the papers again.

  • If your child does not qualify, your EI coordinator will help you to transition out. They'll help you find other support if you still need it.

Start thinking about transition as early as you're ready - at least by age 2.5.

What do you see your child doing or needing when they turn 3?

  • As you know, Early Intervention stops when your child turns 3. But don't worry, there are other services for them after that! We call it transition when you move out of EI.

  • There are lots of things you can do beforehand to help your family and your child get ready for this change.
