CW108 Child Welfare I - Vocational, Educational, and Career Support
Children in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems may have significant challenges in the school setting. Abuse, neglect, and trauma all impact the child’s ability to concentrate and focus. In addition, if a child moves from one home or setting to another, the child may change schools -in fact, some children change schools several times. Given this, children may need additional help and support in the school setting and you may find that teens may need help with vocational and career decisions.
