Tool For Part C New Regulations

For those of you who are concerned with infants and toddlers with disabilities, the new finally arrived Part C regulations are of interest. In a previous post, we provided links to the new regs themselves.

Our friends at the Council for Exceptional Children have developed a side-by-side chart that show the differences between the 2011 regs and the old regs.  If you were used to the old regs, this chart is a very helpful tool.  Here is a link to the chart:

From my perspective, one of the most interesting changes is the addition of a regulation allowing the hearing officer to grant an extension of the 30 day timeline upon the request of a party.  The comments to the regulations imply that extensions should only be granted in extraordinary circumstances, but this makes sense to me.

Let me know if you find this tool useful.
