    • Principle 3: The primary role of a service provider in early intervention is to work with and support family members and caregivers in children's lives.
    • Principle 4: The early intervention process, from initial contacts through transition, must be dynamic and individualized to reflect the child's and family members' preferences, learning styles and cultural beliefs.
    • Principle 5: IFSP outcomes must be functional and based on children's and families' needs and family-identified priorities.
    • Principle 6: The family's priorities, needs and interests are addressed most appropriately by a primary provider who represents and receives team and community support.
    • Principle 7: Interventions with young children and family members must be based on explicit principles, validated practices, best available research, and relevant laws and regulations.
