WASHINGTON (June 25, 2020) – The Office of Special Education Programs released an OSEP Fast Facts infographic to provide a summary of infants and toddlers with disabilities.

The infographic looks at infants and toddlers with disabilities served under Part C of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act from 2018 – 2019.

Data collection authorized under IDEA Section 618 showed 3.48% of infants and toddlers in the U.S. and outlying areas receive early intervention services under IDEA Part C.

Part C of the IDEA addresses provisions related to formula grants that assist states in providing early intervention services for infants and toddlers birth through age two and their families. Part C regulations implement the early intervention program for infants and toddlers with disabilities.

OSEP Fast Facts is an ongoing effort to display data from the 12 data collections authorized under IDEA Section 618 into graphic, visual representations with the intent to present 618 data quickly and clearly.
