The Preschool and Early Childhood Functional Assessment Scale (PECFAS) training prepares clinicians to use the PECFAS instrument - an empirically documented, multidimensional measure that is used for measuring functional impairment in children and adolescents. PECFAS permits assessing impairment, choosing corresponding goals that address areas of impairment, and identifying the child's strengths. Participants will receive a refresher on how to use the instrument to assess School/Daycare, Home, Community, Thinking/Communication, Behavior Toward Others, Mood/Emotions, Self-Harmful Behavior. These sub-scales assist in developing a treatment plan that is strengths-based and outcomes-driven.
• Identify essential information to share with caregivers and families about the PECFAS
• Use the PECFAS in clinical session to encourage families and assist in discussions of setting treatment goals
• Identify five valid ways of using a PECFAS profile to determine clinical progress
• Correctly interpret all items on the PECFAS for reliable rating
• Successfully demonstrate reliable rating of the PECFAS
• Track whether the youth's functioning improves over time
