Early Childhood Team
Who are the members of the Early Childhood and Kindergarten TransitionTeams?
The Early Childhood Team and the Kindergarten Transition Team are comprised of highly experienced professionals including general education and special education teachers, school psychologists, speech language pathologists, and motor therapists.
The Early Childhood Evaluation Team conducts comprehensive developmental evaluations for children birth to 5 years old who are suspected of having a disability. The team determines eligibility for Early Intervention, Early Childhood Special Education and school age eligibilities.
Once children are determined to be eligible for services, Multnomah Early Childhood Program (MECP) will work with families to develop an Individual Family Service Plan. For more information about early childhood services, contact MECP at 503-261-5535.

Transition to Kindergarten
The Transition Team supports children and families through transition - the move from Early Childhood Special Education services to Kindergarten. This process happens during the school year before the child attends Kindergarten.
The team reviews the child's eligibility for special education and provides any additional evaluation that may be needed. Families are provided information about the process of transition from preschool to school-age services and opportunities for school choice.
The Kindergarten program is provided current information about the student. Successful teaching techniques and materials can be shared with receiving teachers or programs.
