The family assessment is a key component of the IFSP development process. Assessment of Family Strengths and Needs is an excerpt from the Early Start Service Coordination Handbook that provides guidance on gathering information about a family's resources, priorities and concerns. This resource addresses topics such as service coordinator responsibilities, tools to gather information, and quality practices to support families. Assessment of Family Strengths and Needs can be viewed online or printed as its own resource, or as an accompaniment to your copy of the Service Coordination Handbook.
