IEP Help

Is your child:

  • Transitioning from Early Intervention to Early Childhood?
  • Transitioning to a new school?
  • Starting a new school year?

As the Parent Liaison at Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley, Cara Long can tell you first-hand that these aren't easy transitions! They are filled with so many unknowns and questions that at times you just want to say thanks but no thanks! She 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 is here to help you through this journey. She has completed this journey and has helped countless other families just like yours. She can answer questions, point you in the right direction of accurate information and even in some cases attend the IEP meeting with you. Her door is always open, so please feel free to give her a call or stop in for a quick question.

Cara's hours vary so check with the Receptionist or your therapist to see if she is here. You can reach Cara at 630-282-2040 or email

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

Cara Long
