Field Guide to Casey Life Assessments LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

The new Casey Life Skills Assessment website offers a suite of research-based assessment tools and resources for helping youth to address and improve needed skill areas as they transition to adult life.  Casey’s resources are free, research-based and proven and offer best practice oriented opportunities which lead to improved outcomes for youth and young adults. 

This session will examine the Casey Life Skills Assessment and familiarize professionals and caregivers with how to register youth for the assessment and guide them through the process of case planning (having crucial conversations, setting goals and action steps and using resources to learn, practice and develop needed skills.)  The session will explore the 13 supplemental assessments that address additional areas that youth often face: parenting; homelessness, school and post-secondary attitudes and the need for supports; special populations and youth who experience developmental delays.  Also included, will be information to utilize caregiver input regarding the youth’s areas of strength and opportunities for growth and how to customize reports and learning plans for groups and individual youth.  Youth engagement strategies will also be discussed.
