Report 7: Findings from Child Assessments from 6 Residential Institutions

Changing the Way We Care

The purpose of the individual assessment of 184 children in six RIs was to collect up-to- date information on the demographics, as well as the social, educational, psychological, and medical status, of children placed in RIs in order to plan their reintegration into their families of origin and/or to prepare them to transition from residential to family care.

The objectives of the assessment focused on:

(i) Analysis of case files and interviews with RI personnel to assess the social situation of children;

(ii) Medical assessments of the children utilizing individual health records and interviews with health workers; and

(iii) Psycho-emotional and behavioral assessments of the children based on interviews with the children themselves (depending on the child’s age and/or other factors) and with Psycho-Pedagogical Assistance Service (PPAS) personnel.
