Summary

This document is the outcome of a conference that examined promising practices in services for children with developmental delays (DD) and gathered input for making policy recommendations related to the implementation of DD as a specific disability category for children ages 3 through 9. It begins by discussing changes to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in 1997 that allows states to serve children with developmental delays ages 3-9, and then summarizes presentations that address use of the DD category, the developmental delay project at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at the University of North Carolina, state eligibility definitions, and findings from a state director survey on the DD category. The perspectives of different stakeholders are included and recommendations for further research are provided. Recommendations include: (1) monitor the percentages of children served under the DD label and changes over time, (2) coordinate national efforts to review assessment procedures for DD, (3) examine the use of the DD label across state and local education agencies, (4) conduct research on parent/student perspectives of DD classification, (5) compare eligibility criteria across states, and (6) conduct research on the effect of eligibility criteria on the number of children served.
