required in the Act. This commenter requested that the requirement be removed from the regulations.

Discussion: We agree with the commenter that requiring transition to specific educational or child care programs may not be appropriate for every child and the phrase

“other appropriate services” covers such programs. The

programs identified in proposed §303.344(h)(1)(iii) were

intended to be examples of programs into which children may

transition from Part C services. However, early education,

Head Start, Early Head Start, or child care programs are

covered through the reference to other appropriate services

in proposed §303.344(h)(1)(iv), which stated that the IFSP

must include the steps to be taken to support the

transition of the child, in accordance with §303.209, from

Part C services to other appropriate services. Therefore, to eliminate duplication, we have removed proposed

§303.344(h)(1)(iii). We also note that the reference in

§303.344(h)(1)(i) to elementary school or preschool was

incorrect and are revising §303.344(h)(1)(ii) to refer to

“Part C services under §303.211.”

Changes: We have removed proposed §303.344(h)(1)(iii) and

redesignated proposed §303.344(h)(1)(iv) as §303.344(h)(1)

(iii). We have revised §303.344(h)(1)(ii) to refer to

“Part C services under §303.211.”
