Community-based Skills Assessment (CSA): Developing a PersonalizedTransition Plan!

The CSA is the first tool to assess needs in the area of community-based living, from transportation to financial management to peer relationships and more. The tool is divided into three levels based upon the age of the individual being assessed. Eight critical areas of functional life skills will be assessed: Career path and employment Self-determination/advocacy Health and safety Peer relationships, socialization and social communication Community participation and personal finance Transportation Leisure/recreation Home living skills The assessment uses both a criterion-based observation and interview-based process to measure the individual's knowledge, skills and behaviors.
