Abstract

In a previous article, rationale and procedures were presented for a model needs assessment of community-based services for children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders and their families. In this article, the authors describe initial needs assessment planning activities, examine the implementation of the proposed model, provide a general overview of the results, and review how the community that conducted the assessment used the information to identify system development priorities and action plans. Quantitative data are provided on the population demographics and parent and direct service provider surveys. Qualitative data are presented on the semistructured interviews with key stakeholders and direct service providers.
