that an assessment is required once a child is determined

eligible, regardless of how eligibility is determined. We

also have added a sentence to new §303.321(a)(3)(i)

(proposed §303.320(a)(2)(iii)) to further explain that, if

review of his or her medical or other records, the lead agency or EIS provider must conduct assessments, including

the family assessment, pursuant to new §303.321(c)

(proposed §303.320).

Changes: As noted elsewhere, we have added the phrase “if

the child is determined eligible as an infant or toddler

with a disability as defined in §303.21” to new §303.321(a)

(1)(ii) (proposed §303.320(a)(1)(ii) and (a)(1)(iii)). We

also have added a sentence to new §303.321(a)(3)(i)

(proposed §303.320(a)(2)(iii)) to further explain that, if

a child’s Part C eligibility is established under that

paragraph, the lead agency or EIS provider must conduct assessments, including the family assessment, pursuant to

new §303.321(c) (proposed §303.320).
