The Referral Process

Placement of a child into the ISO program initiates a thirty-day assessment period. During this time, a psychosocial evaluation and a treatment plan are developed, which identify the child’s needs, abilities, and goals. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) refers children under petitions of abuse, neglect, CHINS, or delinquency. Referred children have various needs, including educational, behavioral, developmental, medical, and/or mental health issues.
