The Educational Needs of Abused and Neglected Children: A Review of the Literature.
Trocme, Nico; Caunce, Carrie
Early Child Development and Care, v106 p101-35 Feb 1995
Examines the literature on the relationship between educational deficit and various risk and protective factors: history of abuse or neglect, foster placement, child age, and environmental conditions. Findings suggest interventions with preschoolers that focus on strengthening children's socioemotional competencies and differentiate between needs of abused and neglected children. Notes that foster care does not appear to be an additional risk factor. (DR)
