Changes section of the preamble.

Changes: We removed from new §303.209(a)(1) (proposed

§303.209(a)(1)(i)) references to children receiving

services under §303.211. We have added new paragraphs (f)

applicability of transition requirements under §303.209.

New §303.209(f)(1) provides that the transition

requirements in paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2), (c)(1), and (d) of this section apply to all toddlers with disabilities receiving services under this part before those toddlers

disabilities identified in paragraph (b)(1) of this section, the parent must be provided at the transition conference conducted under paragraph (c)(1) of this

(1)(ii), of the toddler’s options to continue to receive

early intervention services under this part or preschool services under section 619 of the Act and (ii) The initial

annual notice referenced in §303.211(b)(1).” Finally, in
