(2) Services contractors, community agencies or individuals in the community may also assist the family to initiate a referral if they believe that a child is eligible for early childhood special education or early intervention services or they are concerned about the child’s developmental progress.
(3) Nothing in this section shall relieve school districts of the duty to identify, locate and evaluate preschool children with disabilities under ORS 343.157 (Duty of school districts to identify, locate and evaluate resident children who may have disabilities).
