development of a State’s child find system, including
parents of infants and toddlers with disabilities, EIS providers, Council members, and other stakeholders, have adequate opportunity to comment on, and inform, the
decision-making process regarding a State’s child find
policies and procedures.
Comment: A few commenters recommended removing the phrase
“that will reduce the need for future services” from new
§303.302(a)(3) (proposed §303.301(a)(3)), which requires
each State’s child find system to include rigorous
standards for appropriately identifying infants and toddlers with disabilities for early intervention services that will reduce the need for future services. These commenters stated that eligible infants and toddlers should have access to necessary early intervention services regardless of whether the lead agency or EIS provider
expects the early intervention services to reduce a child’s
need for future services.
Discussion: New §303.302(a)(3) (proposed §303.301(a)(3))
