What will an Assessment look at?
There are four types of assessment:
Assessment Framework (CAF), Initial Assessment (to be completed
within 7 working days), Carers Assessment and a Core Assessment (to
be completed within 42 working days). The Initial Assessment will
also, in an integrated way, include an assessment of the carer's
needs. However, carers are able to request a separate assessment if
they feel this would better meet their needs.
An assessment will look at the needs
of the child or young person and the needs of your family. The
information gathered helps the team to know how best to help you
and also helps them work out the most appropriate range of people
to help you. If your child has a moderate to severe learning and/or
physical disability the team will do their best to provide support,
or to put you in touch with those who can.
