CALOCUS-CASII - Supplemental Manual
For the purchase of supplemental manuals for agencies and individuals who
undergone AACAP approved training on the proper use of the CALOCUS-CASII. For information on training options reach out to AACAP’s Clinical Practice Department.
Developed by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) and the American Association for Community Psychiatry (AACP), the Child and Adolescent Level of Care/Service Intensity Utilization System (CALOCUS-CASII) is a tool used to determine the appropriate level of service intensity for children and adolescents 6-18 years.
The CALOCUS-CASII is a result of the merger between the Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII) and the Child and Adolescent Level of Care Utilization System (CALOCUS). For more information please visit https://www.calocus-casii.org
The Child and Adolescent Level of Care/Service Intensity Utilization System (CALOCUS-CASII) is a standardized assessment tool that provides a determination of the appropriate level of service intensity needs of children and adolescents from ages 6-18 and their families. It is unique in its capacity to determine a service intensity need, guide treatment planning, and monitor treatment outcome in all clinical and community-based settings. The CALOCUS-CASII links the results of a clinical assessment with a defined level of service intensity using a clinically derived and empirically tested algorithm. It is user-friendly, culturally informed, and supports active participation by child and family. The CALOCUS-CASII can be used at all stages of intervention and is designed for use in all child-serving systems, including behavioral and developmental health, physical health, education, child welfare, juvenile justice, and substance use to facilitate integrated attention to the child’s needs. It is independent of diagnosis, promotes effective communication between providers and systems, and informs clinicians’ engagement with the child, family, and community.
