The book not only provides an explanation of the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families, but also a wealth of information on how to implement it sensitively and effectively, summarizing the latest research, policy and best practice. "The Child's World" covers: the assessment framework; the process of assessment; assessing the developmental needs of children; assessing parenting capacity; and, assessing family and environmental factors.
