SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: These regulations implement changes in the regulations governing the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities necessitated by the reauthorization of the IDEA.

On May 9, 2007, the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (72 FR 26456) (NPRM) to amend the regulations governing the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities. In the preamble to the NPRM, the Secretary discussed, on pages 26456 through 26496, the changes proposed to the regulations for this program, which regulations are set forth in 34 CFR part 303.

In these regulations, the Department is amending and finalizing the regulations proposed in the May 2007 NPRM, except in the maintenance of effort (MOE) provisions

(proposed §303.225) (which implement Part C’s supplement

not supplant requirements). The Department plans to obtain additional public input and conduct further rulemaking in this area.
