Individualized Part C Early Intervention Supports and Services
Federal Part C regulations (CFR 303.140(b)) require that a statewide system of early intervention services and state policy are in effect that ensure appropriate early intervention services are available to all infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. Part C early intervention services are those supports and services that are (1) identified by the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) team, including the parents; and (2) necessary and appropriate to meet the developmental needs of each eligible child and the needs of the family related to enhancing the child's development (34 CRR 303.12(a)). The service delivery considerations and underlying philosophy outlined in Individualized Part C Early Intervention Supports and Services in Everyday Routines, Activities and Places are intended to provide a basis for a consistent, family-centered, evidence-based and effective approach to Part C early intervention across Virginia. Virginia has also developed a one-page Executive Summary of the document as well as a one-page Family Information Sheet to use in conjunction with the full document.
