Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII)
Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII)
Developed by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), the Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII) is a tool used to determine the appropriate level of service intensity for children and adolescents 6-18 years of age. It stresses support to service planning that is consistent with System of Care values and principles including the ability to provide intensive services in the home and community. The CASII can be used in all community and facility-based treatment settings and by all child serving organizations including those in integrated care settings. The instrument links the clinical assessment of the child with standardized levels of severity across six dimensions including: Risk of Harm, Functional Impairment, Co-Occurrence of Conditions, Recovery Environment, Resiliency, and Involvement with Services. This linkage is accomplished by identifying relevant anchor points to determine severity in each of the identified dimensions. The CASII conveys information easily and provides a common language which can be used by a spectrum of service providers to best address a client and family’s individual needs. This multi-purpose tool is user-friendly and can measure outcomes during all aspects of treatment.
This online course consists of five e-learning modules leading to the development of skills necessary to compute CASII composite scores, attribute service intensity levels, and create personalized service treatment plans.
By the end of this course learners will be able to:
• Understand the Systems of Care philosophy which serves as the foundation for the CASII
• Explain why the CASII is useful in determining appropriate supports and services
• Determine the correct anchor points for each CASII dimension and compute a composite score
• Describe service intensity levels for each CASII dimension
• Use the CASII to create a service plan based on wraparound service plan concepts as well as any other team-based treatment planning processes

Please note that this Module must be completed by the account used to purchase it. This purchase is non-transferable.

After you complete your purchase, please visit www.aacap.org/pathways for instructions on how to access the course.
