Therapeutic Services Agency provides Diagnostic Assessment services to assist with: determining therapeutic treatment needs, eligibility for specific services based on requirements such as Children’s Mental Health Case Management Services, Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports, and case planning.
The DA (diagnostic assessment) involves a face-to-face clinical interview with the client and licensed professional clinician for the purpose of determining the diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The DA is generally completed at the first appointment and involves 1-2 hours of clinical interviewing. The clinical information gathered for the DA by the clinician covers and assesses the following domains:
TSA provides specialized assessment services with a focus on the needs of the children. Through the assessment process, invaluable information is provided that can be used to help focus and sometimes expedite case and permanency planning on behalf of the well-being of children. The thorough assessment and recommendations concluded offer valuable information not only for parents and families, but also case managers and the courts. Other children and families may need assessment to fully understand the needs of the child, family and parenting attributes, attachment relationships, or sibling experiences and how best to proceed to family reunification/permanency planning.
All Specialized Assessments Include:
Each assessment examines the historical background of family members, the mental health of the adults and the children, the special needs of the family, the addiction/abuse/trauma history, as well as the resiliency and coping strategies for parents and children. Assessments may be completed in a variety of locations including TSA offices, family homes or other arranged sites.
