The Family Assessment and Planning Team invites the family (and child when appropriate) to attend a meeting to discuss their needs. The child and family take an active part in the discussion and the decisions about what services should be provided.
If the family agrees with the service plan, they sign the plan, and services begin as soon as possible.
If the family disagrees with the service plan, they may ask for a review by the Community Policy and Management Team. (See "What Are My Rights?") Emergency services may begin immediately.
