IEP Help

Is your child:

As the Parent Liaisons at Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region, Cara Long and Sharon Pike can tell you first-hand that these aren't easy transitions!  It is filled with so many unknowns and questions that at times you just want to say thanks but no thanks! We thought that it would be helpful to share some information in an effort to dispel the myths about the transition from Early Intervention to Early Childhood.

So, how do you make your transition experience better?  There is a simple answer to that question – the more you know and understand the process, the easier it will be.

Cara and Sharon are here to help you through this journey.  We have both completed this journey and have helped countless other families just like yours.  We can answer questions, point you in the right direction of accurate information and even in some cases attend the IEP meeting with you.  Our door is always open, so please feel free to give us a call or stop in for a quick question.

Our hours vary so check with the Receptionist or your therapist to see if we are here.  You can reach Sharon by phone at 630-282-2036 or email spike@eastersealsdfvr.org; you can reach Cara at 630-282-2040 or email clong@eastersealsdfvr.org.

We both look forward to helping you make this a smooth and exciting transition.
