This document provides an overview of aspects of the education programs for children from birth to three years who have handicapping conditions. Compliance or regulatory issues are not dealt with in this publication. The information provided here is based upon the responses submitted to the Department of Public Instruction from Area Education Agencies and the Des Moines Independent Community Schools. Fourteen of the 15 AEAs responded to the questionnaire; therefore, this document provides an excellent summary of infant and toddler special education and related services throughout Iowa. No attempt was made to ascertain how these services interface with the many services also provided by other agencies. The format used is basically the question from the survey letter followed by AEA response. In some instances, the responses were very. similar and are summarized. Responses are always identified by AEA number or DM for Des Moines Schools. To the extent possible, referenced documents, guidelines, etc., have been included in the Appendices. Please contact the agency using those guidelines, etc., not included to obtain a copy. This document is meant to be used as a reference of current procedures and practices. The primary intent of the gathering of this information was for exchange among AEAs within Iowa. Due to the time and effort a number of persons put into this task, it is felt this publication will also be extremely helpful to other states who are providing birth to three services for the handicapped. Please feel free to duplicate any portion of this material that would be of assistance.
