Statutory Authority 26-1-107, C.R.S. (2015); 26-1-109, C.R.S. (2015); 26-1-111, C.R.S. (2015) 27-10.5-703(2), (3)(b), C.R.S. (2015); 34 C.F.R. Part 303
Description of Subjects/Issues Revisions are needed to make several content and technical changes to support local early intervention programs to implement evidence-based practices that are included as improvement strategies in the federally-required State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP), comply with new training requirements, revise the definition of developmental delay to better identify children with atypical behavior or development, meet all of the requirements of multidisciplinary evaluation and assessment, obtain parental consent for use of the tele-health method of service delivery, and appropriately document services on Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs) in a high quality, standard manner statewide. A minor technical change is made in “Definitions”, Section 7.901, to add back the second half of a sentence to the definition of “Child Find” that was omitted by accident in rules previously adopted in May 2015. Rule changes are necessary in order to enforce the requirements statewide. No other action will provide the necessary and effective level of authority required to ensure that local programs are providing high quality early intervention services to children and families.
