Developmental Status and Early Intervention Service Needs of Maltreated Children

Publication Date

This report describes the extent to which maltreated children have developmental problems or are subject to factors associated with poor developmental outcomes, what services these children might be eligible to receive, what factors influence service receipt, and what solutions have been devised to address barriers to service provision. This final report presents findings from an analysis of the National Early Intervention Longitudinal Study (NEILS) and the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) to provide information about the developmental status and early intervention service needs of children under age three who are substantiated for maltreatment.
