Developmental Status and Early Intervention Service Needs of Maltreated Children. Environmental and Biomedical Risk Affecting Development


Maltreated infants and toddlers are subject to multiple types of risk associated with poorer developmental outcomes, often in conjunction with a measured delay on a developmental measure. Some maltreated children consistently demonstrate developmental concerns over time as evidenced by a low score on a developmental measure. Children with many risk factors at baseline tend to have reduced risk status or subsequent developmental concerns over time. Very few maltreated children are reported to have an established risk condition (i.e., a diagnosed medical condition known to be associated with developmental delay) that would entitle them to Part C services.
