Professional Guidelines

The DEC Recommended Practices (2014) are based on the best empirical evidence as well as the wisdom and experience of the field. The following practices are addressed in the Transition topic area of the DEC Recommended Practices:

  • TR1. Practitioners in sending and receiving programs exchange information before, during, and after transition about practices most likely to support the child’s successful adjustment and positive outcomes.
  • TR2. Practitioners use a variety of planned and timely strategies with the child and family before, during, and after the transition to support successful adjustment and positive outcomes for both the child and family.
