Utah Admin. Code R512-305-3 - Transition to Adult Living Services for a Youth in Child and Family Services Custody
Current through Bulletin 2022-07, April 1, 2022
The following state regulations pages link to this page.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
(1) The caseworker, with the assistance of the youth and Child and Family Team, ensures completion of the empirically validated life skills assessment to identify the strengths and needs of the youth.
(2) Based upon the empirically validated life skills assessment, a TAL plan is developed that identifies the youth's strengths, needs, and specific services.
(3) The youth, with the assistance of the Child and Family Team, determines the TAL plan. Youth aged 14 years or older are required to have a TAL plan, with youth taking the lead in setting goals and facilitating the Child and Family Team with staff guidance. Youth 14 years and older must be given the opportunity to have at least two individuals of their own choosing as members of the Child and Family Team.
(4) TAL services do not substitute for active efforts to address the youth's permanency goal.
(5) The TAL plan includes a continuum of training and services to be completed by the youth and designated team members in such settings as at the foster home, with a therapist, at school, or through other community-based resources and programs.
(6) Basic Life Skills training shall be offered to all foster youth age 14 years and older. The training may include training in daily living skills, budgeting, career development and financial management skills, substance abuse prevention, and preventive health activities (including smoking avoidance, nutrition education, and pregnancy prevention).
(7) Each youth who completes Basic Life Skills training may receive a completion payment.
