If a disability determination is necessary for a child age 15 1/2 to age 18 under
the provisions of P.L. 97-35, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, prepare
a folder (if appropriate) for the disability material on the child and forward the
case to the DDS of the State in which the child resides, unless otherwise excluded
by procedures in this subchapter (see RS 00202.095 “Last Child in Care Attaining Age 16 and Child's Disability Alleged” and RS 01310.001 “Conditions for Entitlement and Definitions”).
If the claim is an EDCS exclusion or limitation, create a paper Modular Disability
