Synopsis: A juvenile justice agency describes processes it has developed to identify service needs that require collaboration with other child-serving agencies such as mental health, school, child welfare, and primary medical care. The agency conducts comprehensive evaluations on all adjudicated youths, including assessing level of impairment with the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS). Data on their youths indicate a high level of impairment and a need for services from multiple child-serving agencies. Assessments and processes developed to identify service needs, implement accountability for delivering services, and track changes in child functioning over time are described. One of the instruments, the Juvenile Inventory for Functioning ? JIFF, is described.
