Must the Procedural Safeguards brochure be given to parents each time they provide permission for evaluation?
No. The Procedural Safeguards notice (formerly known as the Parental Rights brochure) must be provided upon initial referral or parental request for evaluation, upon request by a parent, upon the first occurrence of the filing of a complaint with the OPI, but at least once per year. The sample forms from the OPI dated “July 2005” have been changed to reflect the above requirements for providing the Procedural Safeguards Notice.
