The Form for determining the extent of services required from an intermediate resource is used to establish the amount of support or assistance to be provided by the resource for a user or a group of users.
It may be filled out by one user only, or for a group of users using a representative sample establishing a standard profile as regards level of services required and expected from the resource. The form is based on knowledge of the user and the user’s needs. If knowledge is lacking or insufficient, (when the form is used for the first time), the form will have to be completed over again within a short time. Review of the form is also necessary if a change is noted in
• basic services from the resource;
OR
• the characteristics of the user;
OR
• the characteristics of the required intervention.

PART B - DETERMINATION OF EXTENT OF SUPPORT SERVICES OR ASSISTANCE REQUIRED BY USER AND PROVIDED BY RESOURCE

1- CHARACTERISTICS OF THE USER AND OF THE INTERVENTION

For each facet in this section, you must enter the rating corresponding to the descriptor that best reflects:
— the user’s state (enter rating in column C.2);
— the user’s functioning (enter rating in column C.3);
— the nature of the intervention provided by the resource (enter rating in column C.4);
— the expertise required to enable the resource to provide the required service (enter rating in column C.5).
Fill in the 4 columns for a given facet before going on to the next facet (for example, Cognitive: C.2-C.3-C.4-C.5).
Then add up the ratings in each column and enter the result on line 3.6.
For each column, enter the lesser of lines 3.6 (total) and 3.7 (maximum authorized) on line 3.8 (applicable score). Add up all the amounts on that line and enter the result on line 3.9.
Finally, enter on line 3.17 the total thus obtained.

1.1 CHARACTERISTICS OF THE USER

1.1.1Distinction between state and functioning
— state refers to a trend, a predisposition or a given condition. For some characteristics (physical and relational), a state can be identified through the signs or symptoms a person displays, and through individual attitudes and behaviour. For other characteristics (cognitive, affective and behavioural), a state must be subjected to an overall intellectual assessment of the usual quality of the affect or of the type of personality that determines a behavioural tendency.
Bear in mind that the state refers to more basic, continuous or permanent elements of the facet evaluated. Hence, a temporary, transitory or non-significant element that could affect the evaluation of the user’s state for any of the facets examined in this section should not be considered.
The question to ask here is:
• Is the user or is the user not ___? OR Does the user or does the user not have ________?
— functioning represents the more dynamic or fluctuating nature of the characteristic, its actualization or operationalization, the degree to which it is realized or expressed. For all characteristics, the type of functioning is established through direct or indirect observation (by an outside observer) of the attitudes or behaviour displayed by the user, or of the user’s activities.
Bear in mind that functioning refers to the user’s behaviour. The regularity and continuous nature of the functioning are major indicators for determining the ability or the attitude of the user with respect to the various facets.
The question to ask is:
• Does the user do it? OR Does the user not do it?
— Example for the cognitive facet
A schizophrenic user, that is, someone with a severe mental problem who, despite having an average or above-average intelligence (rating of 2 or 1 for his cognitive state) may not be functional with respect to any of the cognitive components in terms of attention, understanding, judgment, memory or spatial and temporal orientation (rating of 5 for cognitive functioning).
1.1.2 Special considerations for rating children
• In evaluating and determining the state and functioning of a child, reference must be made to the way children of the same age generally act and behave. Whatever the characteristic under study, if there is no significant deviation from a normal state or normal functioning for that age, enter the rating 1. For example,
With reference to physical functioning, it is normal for a child to require help. If the help required is the help normally given a child of the same age, enter the rating 1 for the ADL considered. Otherwise, choose the rating that best describes the user’s functioning in terms of what should normally be accomplished at that age.
With reference to cognitive functioning, the normal sensory-motor development of a baby must be taken into account. In particular, alertness, coordination and recognition of persons in his surroundings must be analysed. It is only normal that a young child does not actualize the cognitive functions to the same extent as an adult does. For example, a year-old baby is considered functional for all the facets. A baby at that age is not expected to be able to accomplish those functions. If, however, problems have been assessed in relation to those facets, they must be taken into account.
With reference to the emotional or behavioural aspect, determination of the child’s or baby’s characteristics must be weighed against how children of the same age usually are or act.
With reference the relational and social aspect, a 2-month old baby having no interaction with social networks other than the parental network is considered to interact with all the networks involved to the extent that the interaction is significant.
1.1.3 Choice of descriptors
For each facet (physical, cognitive, affective, behavioural and relational), you must identify the descriptor that best represents the user, given his state and his functioning (see page 8). A rating of 1 always refers to the best or most favourable state or level of functioning, while 5 describes the worst or least favourable.
In order to choose the right descriptor, it is important to refer to the meaning given to state and functioning for each facet.
PHYSICAL FACET (3.1)
Physical state refers to the presence or absence of organic impairments (illnesses), physical disabilities (motor-related) or sensory impairments (visual, auditory).
• State of health refers to health condition in general with reference to the presence or absence of illnesses and organic deficiencies.
• Physical (motor) or sensory (auditory or visual) deficiency refers to the loss of or a permanent anomaly in a limb or sensory organ.
Examples:
• a user is considered to have a visual impairment when the state of his vision creates a disability that prevents him from performing a usual visual task satisfactorily with a conventional ophthalmological correction. For example: reading, writing, moving about.
• an auditory anomaly is considered to be an impairment only when it results in a significant loss of hearing that limits the person’s ability to hear adequately. In this respect, the definition given by the Commission des centres de réadaptation pour personnes ayant une déficience physique of the Association des centres d’accueil du Québec is used:
“Any person whose hearing evaluation reveals a permanent decrease in auditory acuity or the capacity to discriminate speech that limits him in his ability to hear spoken language and the sounds around him so that he is hampered in his social, occupational and academic integration.”
• Organic impairments or illnesses such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disorders, arthritis, diabetes and cancer are considered to be health problems, no matter what the extent of the disease or the degree to which it is controlled.
• Occasional or temporary illnesses such as the flu or chicken pox are not considered to be health problems.
Physical functioning
• (Line 3.1, column C.3) Refers to the degree of autonomy a person has in carrying out the activities required to stay in good health and communicate.
• (Lines 3.1.1 to 3.1.5, column C.3) Refers to a person’s ability to carry out the activities of daily life (ADLs).
• For each ADL, i.e., personal hygiene, eating, dressing, excretory functions and mobility, it must be determined whether the user can manage and be autonomous, regardless of the technical means required (prosthesis, orthesis, wheel chair, grab bars, cane, adapted utensils, velcro fasteners, incontinence pads, etc.).
• For a user whose ability to carry out an ADL varies over time, enter the rating 3, which represents the midpoint.
Examples:
• Someone in a wheelchair is considered mobile if he can move about without help.
• Someone who needs help to get to the bathroom but who can wash himself is considered functional with respect to his personal hygiene, but not mobile.
• Someone who must be accompanied outside during the winter simply because he is afraid of falling but who, in any other circumstance, has no difficulty moving about is considered mobile. The problem lies in the obstacle encountered, which the person must find a way to deal with.
• A person who must be accompanied simply because he might get lost is considered mobile. It is the need to supervise the person’s behaviour that is a problem, not his mobility.
COGNITIVE STATE (3.2)
Cognitive state refers to a general appreciation of the person’s intellectual level.
• This does not necessarily involve an IQ test to evaluate a person’s intellectual potential.
• Rather it involves a comparison with the general population of the same age.
• It is a matter of deciding which descriptor best represents the user, given the information available.
• When an illness or an accident affects the user’s cognitive state, the rating must be based on the user’s state after the illness or accident, presuming that the state is not transitory and that in all probability, it will continue. Alzheimer’s disease and strokes are examples.
• Example: a user suffering from Alzheimer’s disease in its advanced stages will probably be given a 5, i.e., “displays severe or acute cognitive impairment”.
Cognitive functioning refers to the user’s ability as regards the five main cognitive components: attention, understanding, judgment, memory, and spatial and temporal orientation.
• It must be determined whether the user can use these functions without help, whether help be in the form of stimulation, assistance or other. A user who can manage alone and use the main cognitive functions is considered autonomous, regardless of the technical means used (topographical reference points, reminders, learning and conditioning, role-playing, standard forms, etc.)
• In short, for the user to be considered non-functional, his ability must differ significantly from what is seen in the general public of the same age.
• For a user whose functioning with respect to various cognitive components varies sporadically over time because, for example, of significant fluctuations in tolerance to stress, give a rating of 3, which represents the midpoint.
• If the user has one or more problems in this regard, consider them only if they have a major and significant impact on the user’s daily activities.
Example:
• A user with an intellectual impairment, who has not integrated the abstract concept of space, is considered functional with respect to spatial orientation if he manages to go from his home to various regular destinations using landmarks or as a result of conditioning.
AFFECTIVE FACET (3.3)
Affective state refers to a general appreciation of the habitual quality of a user’s affect. It refers to states of pleasure and neutrality as well as to simple or complex feelings of displeasure (happiness, serenity, anguish, anxiety, insecurity etc.).
Emotional functioning refers to the degree of control exercised in expressing emotions and not to the nature of the emotion, such as fear, tenderness, joy or anger.
BEHAVIOURAL FACET (3.4)
Behavioural state refers to a strong probability, a propensity or a tendency to act or react according to a certain behavioural model, given the user’s personality.
Behavioural functioning refers to the way of acting or reacting, in terms of self-respect and respect for others (usual behavioural model exhibited).
RELATIONAL AND SOCIAL FACET (3.5)
Relational and social state refers to the various social networks with which the user interacts significantly, excluding interaction in the resource, regardless of the manner of interacting. Thus, if the user’s interactions are limited to the people at the resource, including other users, he is considered to have no significant support from identified social networks (rating of 5).
Examples:
• A user who has always interacted with all the networks but who, due to particular circumstances, no longer interacts with one or more networks must be given a rating based on the extent of the change. If it seems significant, i.e., if it seems to be more than a temporary cold shoulder given the network, the user should be rated as not interacting with that network.
• A user who meets with his social worker is considered to have a link with the formal or institutional network, as long as the interaction is significant, that is, regular and continuous. The social worker is a member of the service network in the same way as a physician, a nurse or a psychologist, for example.
Relational and social functioning refers to the manner of interacting, that is, of entering into contact with others, regardless of the individuals or social networks involved.

1.2 Characteristics of the intervention

The characteristics of the intervention required from the resource must be specified for each of the 5 facets and be in line with the user’s state and level of functioning.
The characteristics of the intervention to be noted must be those that, given the age of the user, go beyond what is normally expected of the resource for the facet considered. For example, having to dress a 3-month old baby is normal and will not be considered. In such a case, the rating 0 is entered, since no specific intervention is required. However, the same activity carried out for an adult must be noted, since, in general, an adult does not require assistance in dressing.
Nature of the intervention (C.4)
The nature of the intervention must be determined for each of the facets, but only with respect to what is expected of the resource, in keeping with the user’s intervention plan. Interventions by staff caseworkers, in the resource or elsewhere, are not considered in determining this rating. Where no specific intervention s expected from the resource, other than adequately meeting the user’s needs, the facet is given a rating of 0.



Rating Descriptors: Nature of the intervention


0 Normally expected intervention that does not have to be spelled out in the
intervention plan


1 Verification: Examine with a view to determining whether the user is able
to do adequately what is expected of him (behaviour, self-expression,
activity, etc.).


2 Assistance: Help the user express himself, carry out an activity or choose
among options offered him or her.


2 Stimulation: Suggest through words or actions the behaviour, attitudes,
expressions or actions the user must show or perform, including the
continued use of acquired abilities.


3 Control: Intervene with authority to put an end to or provoke a behaviour
in the user.


3 Substitution: Perform actions, carry out activities for and on behalf of
the user, including services related to physical health that the user
should normally carry out himself.


4 Teaching: Using words, gestures and examples, have the user learn or
re-learn specific skills (knowledge), attitudes and behaviour (know-how) he
requires to function properly, and the means required to use them
specifically mentioned in the intervention plan or pursued within the
framework of specific objectives.


4 Evaluation: Participate in establishing a diagnosis with which it will be
possible to specify the services a user requires or determine the policy to
adopt with respect to the user. (The diagnosis referred to here must be
made by recognized professionals.)

Expertise required (C.5)
The amount of expertise required of the resource must be determined for each of the facets, on the basis of the abilities or knowledge needed to carry out the tasks expected of the resource.



Rating Descriptors: Expertise


0 No particular expertise is required, since no specific intervention is
provided for in the intervention plan.


1 Natural abilities are usually sufficient to ensure that the user receives
the services required.


2 The user requires services that usually demand special knowledge or skills.


3 The user requires services that usually demand the presence of people with
relevant training or equivalent experience.


5 The user requires services that usually demand the presence of people with
relevant training and experience.


7 The user requires services that usually demand the presence of people with
college or university training and relevant experience.
