ASHA Releases Additional IDEA Part C Resources

To further assist ASHA members in the implementation of the 2011 IDEA
Part C final regulations, ASHA has prepared additional resources,
including issue briefs on select topics: implications for audiologists
and speech-language pathologists who provide services for infants and
toddlers with hearing loss and their families; cultural and linguistic
diversity; the individualized family service plan; and an evaluation and
assessments definitions document. ASHA has already prepared briefs on
personnel, transition, referral timelines, service coordination, and
natural environment.

final regulations. Please address specific questions and comments about
