Responsibility of municipality
Public Health (PBH) CHAPTER 45, ARTICLE 25, TITLE 2-A
§ 2552. Responsibility of municipality. 1. Each municipality shall be
responsible for ensuring that the early intervention services contained
in an IFSP are provided to eligible children and their families who
reside in such municipality. A municipality may monitor, which may
include site visitation, evaluators and providers of such services
within the municipality in accordance with this title and regulations
promulgated hereunder, including making the determinations specified in
this section. The service coordinator shall report, in a manner and
format as determined by the municipality, on the delivery of services to
an eligible child in accordance with the eligible child's IFSP. A
municipality may request that the parent select a new service
coordinator or require that the service coordinator select a new
provider of services if the municipality finds that the service
coordinator has not been performing his or her responsibilities as
required by this title or that services have not been provided in
accordance with the eligible child's IFSP. If the early intervention
official determines that the evaluator has not followed the requirements
in this title or regulations promulgated hereunder, the early
intervention official may require that the evaluator immediately submit
additional documentation to support the eligibility determination. If
the evaluator does not provide the requested documentation, or the
documentation provided continues to be inconsistent with the
requirements of this title or regulations, the early intervention
official can require that the parent select another evaluator to conduct
a multidisciplinary evaluation to determine whether the child meets
eligibility for program services.

2. The early intervention official shall require an eligible child's
parent to furnish the parents' and eligible child's social security
numbers for the purpose of the department's and municipality's
administration of the program.
