Building on the Foundations of Part C Legislation: Beginning the Conversation for Reauthorization
Cole, Patricia; Oser, Cindy; Walsh, Sharon
Zero to Three (J), v31 n4 p52-60 Mar 2011
Just as the early years of a child's development create the architecture for future brain growth, early implementation of federal Part C legislation laid the groundwork for a system of supports for families of infants and toddlers with disabilities. Some aspects of the current legislation provide a sturdy foundation for sound policies and effective practice. In other areas, the legislative foundation needs improvement. The 25th anniversary of Part C and the upcoming reauthorization of the program offer opportunities to consider changes to current federal legislation. This article explores issues challenging Part C implementation, and identifies policy areas that can be considered as reauthorization conversations begin.
