Good morning everyone,
I would like to bring to your attention that the paper version of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) tool is now online. It can be found at: www.mass.gov/masshealth/childbehavioralhealth
Once at that website, choose Information for Providers, and then click on CANS tools.
As you will see, there are two Massachusetts versions of the CANS – Birth through Four, and Five through Twenty. A CANS Glossary for Five through Twenty is also available (the CANS Glossary for Birth through Four will be available shortly).
We are currently working on posting a link to this Mass Health web site on the Partnership web site. Once this is completed, all staff will be notified. Providers will then be able to access the link directly from our web site. Thanks very much. Elizabeth
