Transition—Handling an “Almost Late EI Referral”

Transition—Handling an “Almost Late EI Referral”

In order to meet the 90-day compliancy timeframe EI programs should make sure that transition is discussed as soon as possible with families considered to be an “almost late EI referral.” An “almost late EI referral” is a referral where the IFSP is signed when the child is between 30 and 32 months of age. As you know, a late referral, an automatic justified reason for late transition, is a child referred or having an IFSP at the age of 33 months or greater. Transition discussions should occur quickly for an “almost late EI referral” and their transition information entered into the TSS data system and transmitted to DPH as soon as possible. If you have any questions about transition please contact your EI Regional Specialist.
