Product Description

Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS)

The CANS (Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths) is a standardized, easy-to-use assessment tool developed by John S. Lyons, Ph.D., that provides multi-system partners with instantly understandable information about child and youth needs, as well as treatment recommendations that can be tracked by clinicians, supervisors, agency directors, and system administrators.

AJW Inc. has now created a fully automated, web-accessible data collection and data sharing system for the CANS that not only facilitates but requires communication—improving your ability to make consistent and appropriate decisions about children’s care, creating collaborations around these decisions, and intervening at any level of the system that is not working.
