Child welfare policy brief on older youth with disabilities now available

youthwithdisabilitiespolicybrief.PNGThe fifth child welfare policy brief from the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare is now available online. This policy brief uses state administrative data to discuss the experiences of older youth with disabilities in foster care in Minnesota, and is largely based on Dr. Katharine Hill's dissertation, which was discussed in an earlier blog post.

Both policy issues and policy solutions are provided, with links to relevant research and resources.

For a list of all of CASCW's child welfare policy briefs, go to the Child Welfare Policy section of the CASCW website. You'll find them on the righthand side.
