What exactly does a CAS Assessor do?

CAS Assessors perform person-centered CAS (Coordinated Assessment System) to determine an individual’s strengths, needs, and interests. While work is currently done remotely, usually (and likely in the near future), CAS Assessors travel to the homes of adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. There, they perform assessments and look at all areas of the individual’s life such as their living skills, health, behavior, and interests. CAS Assessors are a critical part of the OPWDD system in NYS, with their assessment results serving to better align each individual’s benefits with their critical needs.
