A parent or other adult functioning as a parent is always interviewed. If the child is cared for by someone else for fifteen hours or more a week, this person is also interviewed. The interview assesses the child’s engagement, independence and social relationships within everyday routines and can be used to obtain a narrative description of the child’s cognitive, motor, adaptive, communication and social skills; it does not result in a score but helps to determine the families satisfaction with home routines, resulting in a list of outcomes chosen by the interviewee and is used in the family plan of care development
