Educational Psychology Guidance
Babcock LDP Educational Psychology Service and Early Years Service have collaborated with Devon County Council to produce guidance and transition booklets for schools and settings to promote successful transitions across all phases of education.
Transitions are very important for children and young people and can be a challenging and anxiety-provoking time, particularly when the child or young person is vulnerable or has special educational needs and/or a disability that require understanding and support over the transition.
These guidance documents (bottom of page in Resources) aim to support parents/carers, staff and other professionals in ensuring high-quality transition practice across Devon.
The booklets are designed to be shared with children, young people and parents/carers prior to transition, with the aim of supporting confidence around transitions and this includes practical guidance on factors to consider.
