Abstract:The purpose of this study was to examine how interagency agreements focusing on the transition of children from early intervention programs to early childhood special education are developed. Particularly, the conditions that may facilitate or impede the writing of these agreements, and whether these conditions change over time, were studied, using elements of the conceptual models of collaboration proposed by Gray (1985) and Harbin and McNulty (1990). Participants from four interagency teams attempting to write an agreement were interviewed. The content of these interviews were analyzed and differences among teams and among participant roles on each team also were examined. Results suggested that writing an interagency transition agreement was a complex, multidimensional, and sequential process.
