Program Measurement

    • To assess our services, CASSY uses both quantitative and qualitative data. Quantitative data consists of measuring the following at the beginning and end of treatment:
      • The Children’s Global Assessment Scale (CGAS) is an assessment developed by the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University to provide a global measure of level of functioning in children and adolescents. Our goal is to observe an increase in overall functioning through counseling, which is measured by a pre- and post- CGAS assessment.
      • The Walker-McConnell Scale is a social competency questionnaire completed by the student’s teacher. This information assists the therapists in developing therapeutic goals for the student.
  • For a qualitative assessment, CASSY sends surveys to students, parents and school staff to rate our services at the end of the year.
