Infant or toddler with a disability (§303.21)

Comment: Several commenters supported our proposed definition of infant or toddler with a disability.

Commenters specifically supported the definition in

§303.21(a)(2) regarding eligibility for children with

conditions that have a high probability of resulting in a

child’s developmental delay. One commenter supported the

inclusion of “chromosomal abnormalities” in the examples of

conditions in §303.21(a)(2)(ii) that have a high

probability of resulting in a child’s developmental delay.

A few commenters requested clarification of the list of

examples of these conditions in §303.21(a)(2)(ii). One

commenter requested that “severe attachment disorders” be

added as an example in §303.21(a)(2)(ii). Another

commenter requested that the qualifier “severe” be deleted

from the reference to “sensory impairments” in §303.21(a)
