§ 14.157. Exit criteria.

 (a)  Under section 301(14) of the act (11 P. S. §  875-301(14)), children shall be exited subject to § §  14.161 and 141.162 (relating to procedural safeguards) from early intervention based on one or more of the following criteria:

   (1)  The child has reached the age of beginners and is therefore no longer eligible for early intervention services authorized under the act.

   (2)  The child has functioned within the range of normal development for 4 months, with an IEP, and as verified by the IEP team.

   (3)  The parent or guardian withdrew the child from early intervention for other reasons.

 (b)  If the child does not meet exit criteria and the child’s IEP demonstrates that the child will benefit from services which can be provided only through special education, nothing in the law or this chapter prevents that placement.


   The provisions of this §  14.157 adopted June 8, 2001, effective June 9, 2001, 31 Pa.B. 3021.
