The Personal Outcome Measures® are a powerful tool for evaluating personal quality of life and the degree to which organizations individualize supports to facilitate outcomes. The Personal Outcome Measures® for Children and Youth are grounded in the same values and measurement methodologies as the Personal Outcome Measures® for Adults. The focus of the Personal Outcome Measures® for Children and Youth are different in that they account for the developmental stages for children.
Children/youth, with their families, guardians, or other supporters, define outcomes for themselves. An organization can only design and provide the needed supports after it discovers how the child/youth and family defines their outcomes.
This manual offers detailed guidance for person-centered discovery about individually-defined outcomes of children/youth and their families, as well as the supports they receive to achieve those outcomes.
Inside the Personal Outcome Measures® Manual:
- View detailed descriptions about the POM factors and indicators
- Receive clear guidance about the entire POM process involving children and youth
- Adapt information-gathering and decision-making approaches for children and youth
- Discover techniques for interviewing and measurement
