Have Birth to Three services been expanded for kids who age out?

Can kids older than three years continue receiving birth to three services?

Yes, they can, until the beginning of the next school year. Governor Lamont has ensured children who age out of the Birth-to-Three will still receive services through the fall of 2021 by modifying the thirty-six month age limit for qualification for the services.

The changes to Birth-to-Three services are designed to mitigate any further learning losses caused by pandemic-related isolation, and ensure children who age out of the Birth-to-Three program will continue to receive those services until school resumes in the fall, at which point they will become eligible to receive services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
