(3) Communication;
(4) Social or emotional;
(5) Adaptive.
(b) Established Risk
(1) An established risk condition exists when an infant or toddler has a condition of known etiology which has a high probability of resulting in developmental delay; or
(2) An established risk condition exists when an infant or toddler has a solely low incidence disability.
(c) High Risk for Developmental Disability
(1) High risk for a developmental disability exists when a multidisciplinary team determines that an infant or toddler has a combination of two or more of the following factors that requires early intervention services based on evaluation and assessment pursuant to section 52082 and section 52084:
(A) Prematurity of less than 32 weeks gestation and/or low birth weight of less than 1500 grams.

(N) Persistent hypotonia or hypertonia, beyond that otherwise associated with a known diagnostic condition.
(2) High risk for a developmental disability also exists when a multidisciplinary team determines that the parent of the infant or toddler is a person with a developmental disability and the infant or toddler requires early intervention services based on evaluation and assessment as specified in section 52082 and section 52084.
(d) A developmental delay shall not be determined based on:
