Screening Assessment Referral and Treatment

Screening Assessment Referral and Treatment is a part of 0-5 Services and Evidence-based Practices.

The guiding vision for the Children's SART (Screening Assessment Referral and Treatment) Model of Care is: Children ages 0 - 5 within the context of their families, will be screened, assessed, and referred for treatment through a universal collaborative and standardized process that strengthens and builds on existing programs in the community. It is an integrated system of health and behavioral health and child welfare, which will ensure access to appropriate early intervention services for children (0 -5 years of age) in San Bernardino County. 

The core over-arching strategy is the development of a comprehensive Model of Care for children at risk for developmental, emotional, or behavioral problems due to exposure to alcohol and other drugs, child abuse and neglect, and/or other environmental or developmental factors.
