Last week we made a change to the Eligibility Determination section of the IFSP after two districts reported being cited for not reporting scores for all five areas within the Developmental Delay eligibility section of the IFSP. We have since received clarification that no change was made – that while all five areas MUST be addressed within the Evaluation Summary section of the IFSP, only those scores that establish eligibility under the Developmental Delay criteria (i.e., 1.5 std. deviations or more) must be reported in the Eligibility Determination section of the IFSP.
I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
