Even if you are not currently on the intake team, you are all working toward that job. Practicing and understanding the comprehensive assessment will benefit you as a leader at AFC. Your assignment will not be considered complete until this portion is submitted as well. INTAKE DESCRIPTION: Sara arrived at the intake approximately five minutes early. She came in the morning because her son, Spencer 6years old, is in a half day kindergarten program in until noon. When Sara was brought into the Family Therapy room she gave paperwork to the intake team including: AFC's Intake Forms and a speech evaluation. She did not have a formal assessment/diagnosis. Intake team made a copy of her insurance card. Sara explained that her son had been diagnosed when he was 2 years old. He had received Early Intervention (OT/PT/Speech) until he was three. At 3 he started having seizures and getting his health under control became top priority. He tried different medications and treatment. He is now on Tegretol and the seizures are under control. However, he has not had any therapies for autism since he was 3. He is mostly non-verbal (some echolalia). Mom reported that his frustration derives from his inability to communicate. When he is frustrated/trying to communicate his needs, he will bang his hands on the wall or on his head. Sometimes he will hit mom or his therapist when he escalates. School has an aid for him but the aid could use some behavioral support. Behaviors at school are similar to at home. He can participate with the help of his aid. He engages in SIB and some aggression at school (same as described above). He needs supervision 24/7. Mom explained that, either at home or at school, he will escalate if he is asked to use the toilet, if preferred activities are removed, or if he needs to participate in a nonpreferred activity. He wears a pull-up but chooses to use the toilet "when he feels like it." Mom stays at home so she is available to care for him during the day and take him to therapies/doctor's appointments. Dad works long hours. The patient has one older sister who is 9 years old. Mom says that sister is loving to her younger brother and understands his needs are different. She does get frustrated when he "melts down" for a long time or interrupts family outings.
I think the Comprehensive Assessment will be a valuable tool for the Client Intake Process?
Hint: Use the Client Intake Facesheet to review the communication tools/steps.

Following the intake, Tables One and Two should be completed how quickly?
Who sends the formal assessment results to the parents? *
Who is in charge of ensuring all steps in Table Three are executed in a timely fashion? *

Then do a REAL parent communication doc for one of your patients and use the Canned Email and the document to send your example to Lauren Rabin.
Turning Canned Emails on was easy to follow.
I think I will use Canned Emails only for Parent Communication (or other templates provided by AFC).
I think I will use Canned Emails for other purposes.
Canned Emails will be a useful tool.
Parent Communication emails will be a good resource for parents.
Parent Communication emails will reduce miscommunication/frustrations between staff & parents.

We know that there are technical difficulties we need to improve upon and that we need to be more efficient in creating our content. But once we figure out the kinks, what is a topic (or two!) that would be beneficial for you to spend more time learning?

One last thing...

If you are a BCBA please begin the BCBA Management Sheet. Create a tab for each of your clients and use the first row for each log to input the last: Overlap Form Submitted, Maintenance Form Submitted, Parent Communication, most recent Treatment Plan Submitted, and current programs. If you are missing something simply follow the formula below in the first row of each missing section to indicate it is time to start: 

Date: Use today's date

Reviewer/Link: write "START" or "Missing" 

Next form needed by: Will automatically load so that the form will begin keeping track moving forward. From now on you will have due dates to follow so that these things won't be lost again. 

Have all tabs created and completed by your first BCBA Meeting with Leighna. Don't hesitate to reach out with questions! This is new and will take some practice :)
