Updated Fact Sheet and Check List on the
New Jersey Comprehensive Assessment Tool (NJCAT)
DDD changed its policy on how parents/guardians/individuals will complete the New Jersey Comprehensive Assessment Tool (NJCAT). As a result, The Family Institute updated its fact sheet and checklist to match these changes. The major changes to the fact sheet and checklist are:
- A trained DDD facilitator will conduct a face-to-face meeting with the individual and his or her guardian. The individual or guardian may invite other family members, service providers and or caregivers to participate in the meeting as well.
- The facilitator will access the NJCAT online and, as prompted by the screen, will verbally ask each NJCAT question. The facilitator will enter each answer online only after the answer has been agreed upon by all meeting participants.
- When all questions have been answered, the facilitator will submit the completed NJCAT electronically.
