Do I need a social summary for children under my care?

(1) You must develop a written diagnostic social summary for each child accepted for care. The social summary must serve as the basis of the child's admission to your care.
(2) The social summary must be completed as soon as possible or no later than thirty days from the date of placement.
(3) The summary must contain the following information for the child:
(a) Available copies of psychological or psychiatric evaluations, if any, on the child under care;
(b) A narrative description of the child's background and family that identifies the immediate and extended family resources;
(c) Exploration of the child's relationships and the problems and behaviors that have required care away from his or her own home;
(d) The child's primary and alternate permanency plan;
(e) Previous placement history, if any; and
(f) An evaluation of the child's need for the particular services and type of care you provide.
