The Diagnostic screening is for those youth for whom treatment direction
and service need is yet to be identified. These youth are in need of a
comprehensive assessment to aid the placing agency in determining the
particular and individual needs of the youth. This screening will help in
choosing a direction for care which may prove to be more successful for
the child and reduce the chance of failed interventions.
Youth referred are those who are court adjudicated dependent or delinquent
for whom a service provision is yet to be identified and a plan of intervention
is yet to be implemented. They are also those youth who have failed within a
previous placement/community intervention and are in need of an identification
of strengths and needs in determining future service provision.
The screening is usually 45 days in length and conducted while the child
is in shelter or residential care within Hermitage House Youth Services.
