Additionally, requirements in these regulations, such

as the evaluation and assessment requirements in §303.321,

apply to a child who is referred to the State Part C program but is determined not to be eligible as an infant or toddler with a disability. Thus, including a definition of child in the regulations is necessary, and this definition is clear in its inclusion of infants and toddlers under the age of three.

Changes: None.

Developmental delay (§303.10)

Comment: A few commenters suggested amending the definition of developmental delay. One commenter

recommended that the definition be revised to specifically

reference infants and toddlers with mild disabilities.

Another commenter recommended that the regulations clarify that any definition of developmental delay that the State adopts in response to public comments should not exclude from eligibility children who are eligible under the

State’s pre-existing definition of developmental delay.

Discussion: These comments are addressed in our discussion

of the comments on §303.111.

Changes: None.

Early intervention service program (§303.11) and early

intervention service provider (§303.12)
