Communicating a Decision
Communicating a decision is to be able to tell or show people what decision you have made.
When everything has been talked about and you have had any questions answered in everyday words, then you must have a chance to say or show what the decision is that you have made.
It is important that you have had time to think and/or talk about what has been said.
The outcome of the assessment must be recorded by the person who is doing the assessment.
If, at any of the stages of assessment, you are unable to show understanding, then the assessment should stop and move on to a best interests process to help make the decision.
