    32. 33. Pennsylvania Impact on Students and Families <ul><li>Interagency coordinating teams have emerged in literature and practice as nucleus of change in communities attempting to work collaborative to serve children with special needs and their families. </li></ul><ul><li>As members of the transition community, it is essential to recognize the urgency to work as a team with mutual interest in and a shared vision of all students to live and work in their community as productive citizens. </li></ul><ul><li>Lehman, C., Hewitt, Clark, Bullis, M., Rinkin, J., Castellanos, L., 2002; Wischnowski, M. & McCollum, J., 1995; Repetto, J. & Weiss, K., 1997 </li></ul>
