Funding the early intervention services that eligible infants and toddlers with disabilities (and their families) receive is a challenging affair for the federal government, State systems, and local systems. The federal appropriations for Part C for the year 2013 are in the order of $419.7 million!
So, big surprise: It’s very important for State lead agencies to be fiscally responsible, have detailed written guidelines and policies regarding use of funds under Part C, disclose those policies to families, and work closely with other agencies and entities to provide and fund the range of services needed by babies, toddlers, and families involved in Part C.
This module takes a detailed look at what the Part C regulations require in terms of how Part C funds may be used. Module 14 includes:
- 1 slideshow presentation;
- a trainer’s guide explaining all the content;
- a Speaker Notes version of the slideshow; and
- 1 handout and 3 activity sheets for participants.
Please help yourself! Download the components you need to learn on your own and/or to train others on States’ systems of payment and the use of public and private insurance in Part C.
Files You’ll Need to Download
Trainer’s Guide | The trainer’s guide to Module 14 focuses on the content emphasized in the module—namely, how States may permissibly use Part C funds. Moving slide by slide, the trainer’s guide provides images of each slide, instructions for how to operate the slide (e.g., when to click to reveal more of the slide or to advance to the next slide), and an explanation of the content on the slide. The trainer’s guide is available in two formats, for your convenience:
PDF | Trainer’s Guide for Module 14 (90 pages)
Word | Trainer’s Guide for Module 14 (for accessibility)
Slideshow | The slideshow for Module 14 has 32 slides in total. The file is provided as a PowerPoint Show. Download the file to your computer. As a SHOW, the slideshow will automatically launch when you open the file. It will then operate as described in the Trainer’s Guide.
Speaker Notes | We know from experience that many trainers find it helpful to have a Speaker Notes version of the slideshow. The Speaker Notes version shows each slide picture on the left and provides blank lines on the right (for taking notes). Use the Speaker Notes version for your own planning (it’s in Word, so you can add your own notes where the blank lines are) or share it with participants for their own taking of notes.
Handouts and Activity Sheets for Participants | Module 14 comes with one handout and three optional activity sheets for you to share with participants. Each is provided in PDF and Word formats. The PDF is designed to share with participants. The Word version is made available for those participants who need or request accessible materials.
Handout 13 | Subpart F—Use of Funds and Payor of Last Resort (IDEA’s verbatim regulations)
Activity Sheet 11 | What’s Available in Your State?
Activity Sheet 12 | Putting It All Together: Case Study 1
Activity Sheet 13 | Putting It All Together: Case Study 1
And there you have it, Module 14 on the system of payments and the use of public and private insurance in Part C! We wish you good luck with all your trainings!
