Making and Justifying Recommendations
The Family Studies
Training Time: 90 minutes
There are five separate family studies for this module. You are asked to do the same thing for each family.
One of the family studies will be used on the day of the training event and you will need your preparation from this module.
The preparation you do, will be stored in your Making and Justifying Recommendations Workbook, along with your notes from Module 1. It should be a useful reference for you after the training.
There are five case studies, for each one we would like you to consider:
1. Are there points in the chronology where more formal intervention should have been considered? Explain when and why.
2. What is your recommendation to the panel and what are your reasons for this recommendation?
3. What will you do to gather the child’s views?
4. How will you present the child’s views to the Children’s Hearing?
1 – The Smith Family
3 – The Grant Family
4 – Declan Jones
2 – The Ferguson Family
4 – The Heriot Family
