Module 10: Introduction to Procedural Safeguards in Early Intervention

March 2015
A legacy training module from NICHCY

The procedural safeguards in Part C of IDEA are designed to protect the rights of parents and their infant or toddler with a disability, as well as give families and early intervention lead agencies a way to resolve disputes.

This training module takes a detailed look at the procedural safeguards included in Part C of IDEA. Module 10 includes:

  • 1 slideshow presentation;
  • a trainer’s guide explaining all the content;
  • a Speaker’s Notes version of the slideshow; and
  • multiple handouts and one optional activity sheet for participants.

Please help yourself! Download the components you need to learn on your own and/or to train others on Part C’s procedural safeguards.

Slideshow for Module 10

Speaker Notes | We know from experience that many trainers find it helpful to have a Speaker Notes version of the slideshow. The Speaker Notes version shows each slide picture and provides blank lines below (for taking notes). Use the Speaker Notes version for your own planning (it’s in Word, so you can add your own notes where the blank lines are) or share it with participants for their own taking of notes.
