Danaher, Joan, Ed.
Part C Updates is a compilation of information on various aspects of the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities (Part C) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The intent of the compilation is to collect, in a convenient format, a variety of resources that meet the information needs of state and jurisdictional Part C program staff, the Office of Special Education Programs of the U.S. Department of Education, and policy makers at all levels. It contains information about Part C program administration, as well as Part C program implementation. Section II contains a reprint of the document entitled: "State and Jurisdictional Eligibility Definitions for Infants and Toddlers under IDEA" (Jo Shackelford). Three appendices include: (1) Part C of Public Law 105-17, the IDEA Amendments of 1997; (2) Federal Regulations for Part C of IDEA; and (3) Part C data from the "Twenty-Third Annual Report to Congress." Statistical data and lists of Part C project officers, Part C lead agencies, Part C state and jurisdictional coordinators, and chairs of state interagency coordinating councils are included. (SG)
