New Study on Special Ed & Child Welfare-Involved Youth

Dear ACEs Connection Community,

Wanted to share some of my new work out in Children and Youth Services Review on the factors predicting whether Child Welfare Services-involved youth receive special education.

I find that foster youth have a higher probability of receiving special ed vs. children in the care of an adoptive/biological parent. Given current school closures, supporting foster families educating kids with special needs will be critical.

You can access the article for free (until June)
