Assessment, as discussed in this course, is the process that unfolds as the worker and consumer work together to find solutions to the consumer’s long-term services and support needs. For the worker, assessment means uncovering the physical, mental, emotional, familial, and social conditions that might be acting as barriers to full participation in the person’s life. For the consumer, it means placing trust in another person’s ability to help them find the resources they need to live full and productive lives.

  • Describe the role of the worker in the assessment process
  • Explain how the assessment process supports choice, self-determination, and participation
  • Identify the legal and ethical considerations during assessment
  • Explain the role of the consumer as partner in assessment
