Child Status Index Made Easy Booklet
The Child Status Index (CSI) is a simple instrument used to assess child well-being through visits with children and their caregivers.
This booklet, presented here in beta version, contains both a picture and written form of the CSI. The drawings or pictures show children in both a very good status (far left) and in a very bad status (far right) for each of the 12 factors. The booklet also provides basic instructions for how to complete the CSI, including sample questions and observations to enable you to make your own judgments and rate the child in all 12 outcome areas based on local standards.
