Decision Making Toolkit

The Decision Making Toolkit produced by the Council For Disabled Children is a practical guide to support:

  • social workers
  • health practitioners
  • school and college staff
  • parent carers
  • families
  • and anyone working directly with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

It is designed to be used in partnership with young people to:

  • support them to make their own decisions
  • participate as fully as possible in decisions made on their behalf

It includes a template which practitioners can use to support a young person who lacks the capacity to go through a best interests decision making process. This is based on the best interests checklist in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 code of practice.
