Transition to Independence for Preschoolers Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired

Leer este artículo en español

As the preschool years come to an end, kindergarten looms around the corner. Like the transition from early intervention to preschool you and your child made a few years ago, this next transition can be a bit stressful for you both. Take time to investigate what school program will be best for your child, what professionals will be there to support him, and what you can do to prepare him to meet with success when he starts kindergarten.

At the same time, now that he's older, he can be a part of more experiences out in the community, so you'll want to consider if there are places you'd like to take him or groups you'd like to see him join.

In this section, you'll find resources to help you and your child make this next transition.
