School Involvement in the Dawn Project: Outcomes for Youth with Emotional and Behavioral Difficulties from Ethnically Diverse Backgrounds
Meyer, Lakeisha D.; Anderson, Jeffrey A.; Huberty, Thomas J.
Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, v10 n1-2 p45-60 Dec 2007
The Dawn Project is a system of care responsible for creating and implementing an interagency collaborative approach to service provision. Systems of care are spectrums of services organized to meet the needs facing youth with serious emotional and behavioral difficulties. This study examined the relationship between school involvement in the Dawn Project and outcomes for participating youth. This was done by determining whether school contact with the service coordinator and school involvement with the child and family team had an impact on educational placement restrictiveness. Findings indicate that age, ethnicity, and gender are significant predictors of educational placement restrictiveness. There is also evidence to suggest that school involvement may be associated with more restrictive educational placements. (Contains 5 tables.)
