Accurately identifying families that FDCs should be serving is a difficult and important process. Early identification, use of structured assessment tools, and making timely referrals in a coordinated manner are hallmarks of effective FDCs. This video presentation outlines the key elements of screening, assessment, and monitoring and the principles that drive these critical processes. The importance of early identification, timely assessments, and ongoing monitoring will be highlighted. Effective screening and assessments are more than just about utilizing a tool. It’s about cross-system collaboration based on a commitment to sharing information and ensuring that families receive the services they need to achieve safety, well-being, and permanency.
