Developmental Problems of Maltreated Children and Early Intervention Options for Maltreated Children

04/23/2007

This report describes the most common problems that maltreated infants and toddlers experience and highlights the benefits of early interventions for this population. In so doing, child welfare personnel and policymakers who are responsible for assessing, referring, and advocating for maltreated children can make more informed decisions. The report is divided into two parts. Part 1: Developmental Problems of Maltreated Children highlights functioning of young maltreated cildren. Part 2: Early Intervention Options for Maltreated Children discusses the potential benefits of early intervention options for maltreated children through highlighting common treatment formats. Included is a section on future research and recommendations about how professionals can better recognize young maltreated children, more efficiently enroll them in treatment programs, and more strongly ensure their active participation in those programs.
