are being provided to the infant or toddler with a

disability and that child’s family.

Changes: None.

Comment: One commenter recommended that proposed

§303.33(a)(2), which provides that a service coordinator or

case manager must assist parents of infants and toddlers with disabilities to coordinate early intervention services and other services identified in the IFSP that are needed or are being provided to the infant or toddler with a disability, be revised to state that a service coordinator or case manager must coordinate early intervention and

other services identified in the IFSP for “other family

members” in addition to “parents.”

Discussion: Including a reference to “other family

members” in this section would be inconsistent with

sections 636(e) and 639(a)(3) of the Act, which provide

that a parent, and not “other family members,” has the

authority to consent to the eligible child and family

member’s receipt of any early intervention services

identified in the IFSP by the IFSP Team.

Changes: None.
