Dear Lisajoy-ga,

I think I?ve found the information you?ve asked for. The New York
State Department of Health?s web-page ?Center for Consumer Health Care
Information - Laws and Regulations? ( ) has links
to the two titles of the ?New York Codes, Rules and Regulations?
(NYCRR) corresponding to their activities:

Title 10: Public Health ( )

Title 18: Social Services ( )

They are both very user friendly to navigate, and you can either
search by reading the ?table of contents?, or by using the search
engine. Title 10?s table of contents? URL is:
. The search engine?s one is:$SearchForm?SearchView

The whole Subpart 69-4 (,69
) containing 30 sections is about the ?Early Intervention Program?.

It?s possible that a good deal of the information that you need be in
?Section 69-4.9 - Standards for the provision of services?, but the
paragraph (c) just reads ?All providers of early intervention services
shall maintain a physical plant that ensures a safe environment for
eligible children and their families?.

I don?t know exactly the nature of the work you need the information
for?thus can?t measure adequately the scope of the search for rules
you want?but it?s possible that you wanted to search the whole Subpart
69-4 or even the whole Title 10. For that purpose, the search engine ($SearchForm?SearchView
) offers you the possibility to search by keywords. For example,
?child abuse? returns 11 documents of the Title 10, two of them of
part 69, none of subpart 69-4. But only you are able to determine
which documents apply to your needs and which ones don?t. The
documents found for part 69 are:
?Section 69-3.11 - Failure to obtain required immunization? (

?69-3.11 Failure to obtain required immunization. Barring a valid
medical contraindication or religious exemption from hepatitis B
immunization, if the parent or legal guardian of a child born to a
woman with a positive HBsAg test result is unwilling to have the
infant immunized, the health care provider attending the child, or the
local health officer if vaccine is to be administered under section
3.8 of this Subpart, shall make a report of suspected child abuse or
maltreatment (See Section 415 of the Social Services Law).?


?Section 69-5.3 - Minimum training standards? (

?69-5.3 Minimum training standards. Rape crisis counselors must have
at least 40 hours of training, at least 30 hours of which must have
been completed prior to certification and the remainder of which must
be completed within one year from the date of certification. This
training shall include, but need not be limited to, instruction in the
?(a) the dynamics of sexual offenses, sexual abuse and incest;
?(b) crisis intervention techniques;
?(c) client-counselor confidentiality requirements;
?(d) communication skills and intervention techniques;
?(e) an overview of the state criminal justice system;
?(f) an update and review of state laws on sexual offenses, sexual
abuse and incest;
?(g) the availability of state and community resources for clients;
?(h) working with a diverse population;
?(i) an overview of child abuse and maltreatment identification and
reporting responsibilities; and
?(j) information on the availability of medical and legal assistance
for such clients.?

You might as well find necessary to search for information in Title
18?Social Services ( ), in which
case you can search by keywords very similarly. The corresponding URL
of Title?s 18 search engine is$SearchForm?SearchView
, while the table of contents? link is


In the same page of the beginning ?Center for Consumer Health Care
Information - Laws and Regulations? ( ), there?s
also a link to the ?Regulatory Agenda, New York State Department of
Health? ( ),
which may be useful for you because it describes the rules of the
aforementioned Titles that are ?under consideration 2for submission as
a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking during the calendar year January


Search strategy: health social-services "NY Codes, Rules and Regulations"

I hope to have met your needs. Please do not hesitate to ask for any
clarification you might find necessary. Thanks for your question.
