Student is a 2-year-old student receiving Early Intervention1 (hereafter EI) Services under the auspices of Centre County Mental Health/Mental Retardation Program (hereafter County). Based on improvement of his language skills following a cochlear implant, the County proposed to reduce the frequency of services. The parents did not agree to the reduction in frequency. Since an agreement could not be reached in the revision to the Individualized Family Service Plan (hereafter IFSP), the County requested a due process hearing.


1. Is the County’s proposed reduction of S/L and Hearing services appropriate? (N.T. 14, 18.)
