To distinguish the transition requirements in

§303.211(b)(6), which apply to toddlers receiving services

under the Part C extension option in §303.211, who by

definition are age three or older, we have revised

§303.209(a) to state that the transition policies and

procedures it must describe relate to the transition of infants and toddlers with disabilities under the age of three and their families. As further discussed elsewhere in this Analysis of Comments and Changes section, we have

made corresponding changes to §303.211 to clarify that the

transition requirements in §303.209 apply to all infants

and toddlers under the age of three who are transitioning

from the Part C program (as described in §303.211(b)(6)(i))

and that the transition requirements described in

§303.211(b)(6)(ii) apply to children age three and older

who are transitioning from services provided pursuant to

§303.211.

Changes: We have deleted in new §303.209(a)(1) (proposed

§303.209(a)(1)(i)) the parenthetical “(including toddlers

receiving services under §303.211).” We also have revised

§303.209(a)(1) to clarify that each State must describe in

its application, the policies and procedures it will use to ensure a smooth transition for infants and toddlers with disabilities under the age of three and their families from
