DPW Review of Child Screening and Assessment Tools
October 15, 2008

The Department of Public Welfare (DPW) recently released a chart listing standardized tools that can be used in screening and assessment of children and adolescents.  DPW policy staff, in collaboration with the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and the Office of Children, Youth and Families, developed this chart of screening and assessment tools, target populations, costs, and other characteristics as part of their study of the use of residential treatment facilities. The child screening and assessment tool document is available on the PCPA web site. Questions or comments regarding the chart may be directed to Angie Logan in the DPW Policy Office at anglogan@state.pa.us.
