Palmer, Susan
This fact sheet uses a question-and-answer format to summarize early intervention services for children (birth through age 2) provided by Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-17). Questions and answers address the following topics: the purpose of Part C (early identification and intervention with infants and toddlers); eligibility for services under Part C (children under age 3 with developmental delay or diagnosed conditions); services mandated to eligible children and their families; the Individualized Family Service Plan; procedural safeguards under Part C; the role of the state and federal governments in providing services; services that each state must provide (such as a comprehensive child find and referral system); and paying for early intervention services.
