All personnel in the State of Florida who are involved in the provision of early intervention services to eligible infants and toddlers have a responsibility to ensure the effective implementation of procedural safeguards. Although the primary responsibility of ensuring the family's understanding of procedural safeguards rests with the service coordinator, other personnel must take steps to ensure families' rights are protected. From the very beginning of the IFSP process, the service providers may need to share personally identifiable information with other providers and agencies while respecting the privacy of the family. Each family in Early Steps is entitled to know that the information they provide will be kept confidential and passed on to others only with their permission and in a respectful way.
