Pre-referral Procedures

• Revised §303.301(c) (proposed §303.300(c)) requires

each lead agency, as part of its public awareness obligation, to provide for informing parents of toddlers about preschool programs under section 619 of

the Act not fewer than 90 days prior to the toddler’s

third birthday.

• Revised new §303.302(c)(1)(ii) (proposed §303.301(c)

(1)(ii)) adds the following two programs to the list of programs with which the lead agency must coordinate

its child find efforts: (1) the Children’s Health

Insurance Program (CHIP) and (2) the State Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) system. Since the publication of the May 2007 NPRM, the name

of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (S-

Chip) was changed to the “Children’s Health Insurance

Program (CHIP).” This change is reflected in these

final regulations.

• Revised §303.303(a)(2)(i) requires primary referral

sources to refer a child to the Part C program “as

soon as possible but in no case more than seven days”
