The NCAST/PCI scales are a prominent tool that child welfare workers use to gather information when assessing parent-child interactions and intervening with parents and young children. Being certified in the use of this tool supports workers’ ongoing assessment, case planning and permanency planning efforts with families. There are two scales, Feeding and Teaching, which often are used together.
The NCAST/Parent-Child Interaction Teaching Scales Recertification course supports your knowledge-building with the opportunity to achieve reliability and to maintain your certification in the use of this tool.
