Default Assessment Sheet???

One of the other threads got me to thinking..

DOes anyone have or would it proper if we were to create an assessment sheet for the parents to answer questions about their child during the interview process?

If anyone has one can you share it with us?

Or lets make one.

I do think that if we really asked all of the right questions from the get go, we would all really have a much better understanding of what we were getting into and would know if we would be able to work with such a child or not.
