A State of the Field Study of Child Welfare Services for Migrant Children and Their Families Who are In-Stream, Home-Based, or Settled-Out. Literature Review.
Porteous, Sandra McClure
Part of a study of migrant child welfare services, this review synthesizes all available materials on the issues affecting migrant child welfare. Each chapter discusses the importance of a particular service area, assesses the migrant child's needs in that area, describes existing barriers to service delivery, and presents a history and the current status of legislation and programs affecting the services. Services are in the areas of physiological and environmental health, education, day care, child abuse and neglect, and legal aid. These include services targeted specifically to migrant children as a unique population and services available to them as part of the general population. Among the topics are: the 1962 Migran Health Act; Food Program for Women, Infants and Children; Food Stamp Act; National School Lunch and Child Nutrition Act; Social Security Act; family structure; child labor; Fair Labor Standards Act; laws regulating wages, unemployment, right to organize and bargain collectively; Pesticide Protection Laws; housing; Occupation Safety and Health Act; mental health; ESEA Titles I and VII; Comprehensive Employment and Training Act; Emergency School Aid Act; California Migrant Teacher Assistant Mini-Corps; Learn and Earn; New York State Migrant Center; Migrant Head Start; illegal aliens; Texas Migrant Council Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Program; and legal aid. A 301-item bibliography of materials collected is included. (NQ)
