Entry to Elementary: How Transition to Kindergarten Shapes Lifelong Success

Dr. Nancy Norman, Education Assistant Program and Teaching Fellow - K-12 Transformation

 

Going to kindergarten is a significant milestone in the lives of both children and their parents, and has strong implications for social-emotional wellbeing and academic success. However, it is often a time of increased stress and uncertainty, as daily schedules change, new teachers and peers are introduced, and environments and expectations are shifted. This presentation will highlight the importance of a smooth transition to school from an ecological systems perspective, and will emphasize key facilitators and barriers for typically developing children and for children with complex learning needs.
