State/Jurisdiction Eligibility Definitions for Part H.
NEC*TAS Notes, n5 Oct 1992
This paper discusses how states and jurisdictions define "developmental delay" and "at risk" in their definition of eligibility for services to infants and toddlers under Part H of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. It reviews the procedures and criteria used to determine developmental delay and outlines the categories of risk for adverse developmental outcomes (established risk, biological/medical risk, environmental risk, and single versus multiple risk factors). A nine-page table displays a summary of states' policies regarding the definition of developmental delay and their approaches to serving at-risk children. This table indicates the status of each state's participation in Part H, state criteria for developmental delay, eligible at-risk categories, and comments. (JDD)
