(This amendment provides $1.5 million from the general fund the second year to fund Part C services in fiscal year 2010 for infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, from birth through age two. Services include assessment, parent education, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy and additional developmental services. Studies conducted by some Community Services Boards demonstrate that 25 to 35 percent of infants and toddlers who receive Part C services do not need special education and can transfer to mainstream classrooms, avoiding huge education and health care costs.)
