Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) General Information

As required by 922 KAR 1:360, Levels of Care are determined using the DPP-886A or Application for Level of Care Payment and the Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) for children with an IQ of 70 or above.

Initial Levels of Care or reassignments require CBCLs be submitted with other information if the IQ is 70 or above. Once children are in PCC residential or foster care placements, CBCLs are to be completed every 6 months with the Application for Level of Care Payment. For children with an IQ below 70, the Reiss is to be submitted with the Application for Level Payment as required.

For children ages 6 and above, the Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) is completed online through a CRP web application. For information about accessing the on-line CBCL, to register as a DCBS worker or PCC employee, or for other related information please contact Tye Reece by e-mail or phone at (859) 455-7452 ext. 228. You may also refer to CBCL Online Instructions for additional information about completing this CBCL.

For children ages 4 & 5, a paper form entitled Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 1 ½-5 is required. This form is also used with children who are less than 4 years of age who are medically fragile or have special needs requiring a level of care. See CBCL Hardcopy Instructions for information about completing this CBCL. For questions or to request additional Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 1 ½-5 forms, contact the CRP office at (859) 455-7452.
