In-Home Observation and Assessment
In-home Observation and Assessment (O&A) provides evaluation, crisis intervention, treatment planning, and recommendations for adjudicated youth pending disposition. Youths receive comprehensive mental, behavioral, social, and educational assessments to identify their needs for services. Psychological and psychiatric/medication evaluations are completed when indicated. Youths ordered to the program are assigned a senior counselor/clinician who gathers the necessary information for the court report.
Regular and frequent visits occur at the youth’s home, and staff work with the school to provide support to the school during the assessment period. Assessment results from the “basis for recommendations” made to the Juvenile Court. Youths requiring additional structure and supervision can be ordered to participate concurrently in Brief Community Intervention.
