The Need for Educational Assessment of Children Entering Foster Care
Evans, Larry D.; Scott, Susan S.; Schulz, Eldon G.
Child Welfare, v83 n6 p565 Nov 2004
Comprehensive medical and mental health evaluations of children in foster care are recommended within 30 days of entering care. What constitutes a comprehensive evaluation has yet to be established. This study examines the need to include educational assessment as a component of the comprehensive evaluation. Rates of achievement and language problems for Arkansas school-age children are compared with rates of medical and psychiatric disorders to assess the relative need for including educational assessment.
