Children and the Common Assessment Framework.

Extracts from this document...


Impact On Parents The common assessment framework makes everyone think about the bigger picture, they say that one of the most important things is that the parents are there too. Before the CAF with all the other agencies everything was just looping round in a circle and people werent really getting anywhere. The process can support outcomes for children, young people and their families that have been improved by ensuring that they get the right ammount of support that they need and want. However some challenges are still there, for example they say that more needs to be done with support for early intervention and prevention.

it just makes it so much easier when you're talking to someone and they?re not looking down at you or judging you.?

The benefits of this are that the parents understand what their childs needs are, improved skills and parenting techniques, improved relationships between families and professionals.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

A piece of work looking at the CAF. An introduction outlining what would be covered would be useful to help the reader get a sense of what will be presented. It is also useful for the writer in terms of using it to check that what it is the main body matches what was written in the introduction.
As it was not clear what the purpose of the work was, suffice to say that there were several statements which needed substantiating, and it was unclear why there were several quotes from (unidentified) research included. The writing style was in need of improvement due to the frequency of spelling and grammar errors which would not be acceptable for work at this level.
Remember to include a list of references at the end of the work.
