At a minimum, the following parties must be present at the interview:
If at all possible, another professional support staff person is to be included in the interview. A professional support staff person is someone who has a background in social work, mental health, substance abuse services, rehabilitative services, or a related area. This person may be a specialized DHS staff person who is co-located in the Family Community Resource Center or a counselor who is already involved with the client. The professional can be a Family Community Resource Center staff person who meets the definition. It is not mandatory that the person be from outside the Family Community Resource Center.
NOTE: ORS will determine if there is a need for a medical exam or vision and hearing screening.
NOTE: When you reach this point, keep the client's counter in mind when you devise a plan of action for the client.
(FCRC Team) Schedule a follow-up meeting. Make sure to schedule the follow-up meeting far enough in advance to allow for the Multi-disciplinary Staffing.
