7.3.6 Completion of Professional Assessment

The Children’s Service Worker shall complete a professional assessment of the 30-day treatment process using the NCFAS G+R (intake fields), to assess family functioning and the Child Assessment and Service Plan, CS-1, to assess the child and document the child’s overall case plan.  All parents should be given the opportunity to be involved in the assessment process. It is important to assess each parent to obtain a thorough understanding of the family functioning.

This will be based upon information gathered during the worker’s contacts with parents, child, resource providers, and treatment providers during the 30-day treatment process.

Upon completion of the NCFAS G+R and CS-1, the worker, in consultation with the supervisor, will prepare an agency recommendation to be presented at the 30-day Family Support Team meeting.
