section 636(a)(3) of the Act regarding a multidisciplinary team developing the IFSP.

Discussion: As noted in the Analysis of Comments and

Changes section for §303.24, we agree with commenters

regarding the definition of multidisciplinary as it applies

to IFSP Teams and have added in §303.340, concerning the

development, review, and implementation of an IFSP, a

reference to the “multidisciplinary team, which includes

the parents” to reflect the requirements in section 636(a)

(3) of the Act. The IFSP participant requirements in

§303.343, together with §§303.24(b) and 303.340, clarify

that the multidisciplinary IFSP Team requires the involvement of the parent and two or more individuals from separate disciplines or professions, one of whom must be the service coordinator.

§303.340 the following phrase “developed by a

multidisciplinary team, which includes the parents” from

section 636(a)(3) of the Act.

Procedures for IFSP development, review, and evaluation
