(This amendment provides $778,325 from the general fund the first year to prevent the reduction or elimination of Part C services through June 30, 2009 for infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities from birth through age two who are currently enrolled in and served by Part C programs. 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 in future years.)
