Assuring the Well-Being School-Aged Children in Foster Care (PN #08)
A growing body of research is demonstrating that a large portion of children in foster care suffers significant emotional and behavioral disturbances. Further, a high percentage of maltreated children experience difficulties associated with school-based problems. Given the clear indication that school-aged children may enter foster care with significant risks to their normative functioning in both psycho-social and educational experiences, how competently is the child welfare system responding to these risks?
Practice Notes was developed in collaboration between CASCW affiliates and public child welfare practitioners. They were intended as a reference for practitioners, linking research with best practices. Issues were published between 1997 and 2010.
