The development of individual transition goals ensures that the aspirations and needs of the child, parents and school are identified and recorded, and a plan of action is developed.
Individual transition goals
Individual transition goals should identify:
- skills or routines the child will require to support successful transition into Prep, such as following a visual schedule for a session, sitting at mat time, walking with a peer or asking for help
- supports specific to the individual to augment smooth transition, such as the use of story boards, photo books, individual schedule, break routines, comfort toys or activities
- a timeline of transition activities, such as planning meetings, school visits, early learning centre visits, home visits, photography or video recording sessions, collation of school brochures and newsletters, enrolment procedures or information and portfolio sharing sessions
- specifically the 'who', 'what', 'where' and 'when' of these goals which need to be recorded.
The 'Examples of my learning' section of the
Transition booklet: My journey to Prep contains examples of strategies, supports and adjustments which may be adjusted and or incorporated into the student's individual transition plan.
