The CLS is a 33-item yes/no scale that you can use to assess your client’s use of community resources and their ability to negotiate for self and family in the community. The 33 items cover six major categories.
You will find the CLS useful for gathering baseline and outcome data about your clients’ use of community resources, identifying strengths and needs, facilitating mutual goal setting, and evaluating change as a result of intervention. The CLS was updated in 2010 to reflect current information and technology.This assessment is administered as an interview. (100/Pad)
