(a) A requirement that all early intervention services must meet State standards and be consistent with the provisions of this part;
(b) The mechanisms that the lead agency will use in arranging for these services, including the process by which awards or other arrangements are made; and
(c) The basic requirements that must be met by any individual or organization seeking to provide these services for the lead agency.(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 1820-0550)
(Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1435(a)(11))
