Join expert advocate, Larry Rosen for a free Facebook live stream event on 01/22/2021. Larry will be discussing the three key factors in obtaining Protective Supervision for children that are very young of age.
Sample Topic: Can any 3-year-old be authorized for Protective Supervision? The county is not permitted to “presume” that a child of any age has a mental functioning score of 1 (No impairment.) The county must assess the minor for mental functioning. The county must determine whether a minor needs more supervision because of his/her mental impairment than would a child of the same age without a mental impairment. A child must not be denied protective supervision solely based on age or because he/she has incurred no injuries at home due to the mental impairment.
