In February 2022, Sonnet worked with BERRI to develop their Theory of Change. BERRI is a clinical evaluation tool for identifying, tracking and improving the outcomes of children with complex needs.
The assessment gathers information in five themes:
- Behaviour (dysregulation)
- Emotion wellbeing
- Risk (vulnerabilities, self-harm)
- Relationships (lack of trust, lack of shared reality, theory of mind, unemotional)
- Indicators (of neuro-developmental or psychiatric conditions)
The eventual Theory of Change summarised outcomes for children and young people under three headings; Recognising self, Finding your place and Co-creating your future. Under these headings, Sonnet and Berri were able to calculate the impact that BERRI’s work creates, valuing the social impact for the children, local authorities and carers & community as at least£193k per young person.
