During transition from early intervention to the public school system, the responsibility to advocate shifts to the parent. Parents need knowledge of special-education programming to advocate properly. A study examining parents’ knowledge of the transition found gaps in knowledge of special-education programming. The study also identified education level as a relevant factor to knowledge levels. OTs should empower parents to advocate for the educational needs of the child.
