Conn. Agencies Regs. § 10-295-3 - Review of persons provided with services

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) Annual review/individual training plan: There shall be, at a minimum, an annual review of each deaf-blind person provided services under these guidelines.

That review will include a written individual training plan (ITP) which includes goals and recommendations for the coming year and assesses appropriateness of current placement. The ITP will be developed from a standardized format approved by the advisory committee. The student and/or guardian shall be invited to participate in the formal ITP development meeting. The student and/or guardian may bring an advocate if they so choose.

The ITP team shall meet in the spring and at other times as necessary.

Assessment materials should be provided as appropriate to team members before the meeting.

There shall be annual written documentation.

A student and/or guardian dissatisfied with the ITP plan shall have the right to appeal to the placement review team. A request for appeal should be made to the agency coordinator within thirty calendar days of the ITP meeting. A meeting to hear the appeal shall be scheduled within fifteen calendar days, but may be postponed by mutual consent of the student and/or guardian and coordinator.

If a student is unable to participate in the ITP meeting and there is no legal guardian, a report on the ITP plan will be referred by the agency coordinator to the state office of protection and advocacy for their consideration.

(b) Changes in placements: Any recommendation for change in placement will be reviewed by the placement review team (PRT).

The PRT will also hear appeals from the ITP team. A student and/or guardian or advocate dissatisfied with the decision of the placement review team shall have the right to appeal to the advisory committee. Such request for appeal should be made in writing to the executive director of the board of education and services for the blind within thirty calendar days of the placement review team decision. A meeting to hear the appeal shall be scheduled within fifteen calendar days after receipt of such request but may be postponed to a later time by mutual consent of student and/or guardian or advocate and agency.
