Early Intervention (EI) process for initial referrals when using the RBI.
Question: When a new referral is made for an infant/toddler under age 3, and the EDN services coordination (SC) agency discovers the referral should have been sent to another EDN SC agency/district, what regulatory timelines apply? Does the 45 calendar days from referral to IFSP start over on the date that the other EDN SC agency receives it from the original SC agency? Or does the 45 calendar day timeline start on the original referral date?
