PfA Self Evaluation Tool
The purpose of this booklet is for others to find out crucial information about a child or young person with high support needs in a short time-frame. It could be used by a new support worker at home, staff at a short-term break service, a learning assistant or teacher at school or a nurse if the person has had to be admitted into hospital. It also contains essential information should an emergency situation occur – whether it is a social care or medical emergency.

Each version is made up of a list of key themes for each audience and considers what should be happening in local areas. Professionals can use the self evaluation tool to understand what is working well and where things might need to improve.
