If you believe that your child will have ongoing special education needs, you should request a special education referral at least six months before your child's 3 rd birthday. Contact the school district in your city or town to request a special education referral. This referral can help your child transition from EI to the education system at age 3.
Tip: Keep copies of your child's IFSP with other school care plans and forms.
