This 2008 document from NECTAC describes broad, but essential components for an effective infrastructure to develop, support, and maintain early childhood transition practices. It attempts to define a conceptual framework for transition and to identify key considerations for providing technical assistance to address the APR transition indicators. The document is designed as a framework and tool to be used by states, territories and jurisdictions when analyzing their transition system infrastructure and identifying interventions and strategies for improving early childhood transition practices at the state and local level. Its purpose is to improve state and local performance on the Annual Performance Report indicators specifically related to transition (Part C Indicator 8; Part B Indicator 12).
