Discussion: We address these comments in our discussion of
the comments on §303.342.
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)
