In proposed rules for Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) published in the May 9 Federal Register, the Department seeks to ensure that states provide early intervention services to children birth through age 2 in a timely and effective manner.
Part C is a $436 million program serving infants and toddlers through age 2 with developmental delays or who have diagnosed physical or mental conditions with high probabilities of resulting in developmental delays. At a state's discretion, children in that age range who are at risk of having substantial developmental delays may be eligible to receive services.
This package will help promote excellence in the early intervention services that states provide to infants and toddlers with disabilities.
