Abstract

The PEP TALKS: Partnership for Education Planning Talks was an addition to the programs already offered at Butler County Children’s Center (BCCC). The goals of this program were to increase ease with transition for families from Early Intervention to Preschool Special Education services, to increase the advocacy material parent educators provide to parents of children birth to three transitioning out of early head start programs, and to increase parent understanding, satisfaction, and participation with the IEP process. In order to accomplish these goals, educational materials were developed and presented to parents in individual and group settings, and current parent educators at the Butler County Children’s Center (BCCC) were trained on the implementation of educational materials to ensure sustained use of resources.
