Part C, Module 12: Access to and Examination of Records

Part C, Module 12: Access to and Examination of Records

March 2015
A legacy training module from NICHCY

In delivering  services to infants and toddlers and their families under Part C of the IDEA, the lead agency and its early intervention service (EIS) providers collect information about the infant or toddler and his or her family. This includes personally identifiable information that is subject to privacy protections under federal law. 

This training module takes a detailed look at a parent’s rights to access and examine the early intervention records of their child. Module 12 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 the protection of personally identifiable information in early intervention records of children and families, including a parent’s right to access and examine those records.

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.
