Early Intervention can support a range of different needs, for example
Assessing your needs
One of the important ways we help families through early intervention is by using a simple, effective assessment of children's and families' needs.
This helps us to work with you to identify the most effective ways to work with children and families to change their lives for the better. This is called the Common Assessment Framework (CAF). This assessment is carried out by a professional already working with a child, young person or family.
The work that follows that assessment is co-ordinated by a lead professional within a team around the family (TAF).
