Problems in educating abused and neglected children with disabilities

Author:
WEINBERG Lois A.
Journal article citation:
Child Abuse and Neglect, 21(9), September 1997, pp.889-905.
Publisher:
Elsevier

This article considers the theory that the reason the special education needs of abused or neglected children in foster care are not being met appropriately is that the services provided to them revolve around their need for protection. Concludes that in those instances where the child welfare agency did not take into account a child's educational needs when placing the child, but simply considered the appropriateness of the living situation to protect and care for the child, then the thesis appears to be borne out. However, some dysfunctions appear to be part of a routine lack of compliance with certain areas of special education law, and would seem to affect any child with similar disabilities and educational needs in the offending school districts.
