Abstract

Nearly half a million children in the United States are currently being served by the foster care system. Infants and toddlers represent the largest single group entering foster care. While these very young children are at the greatest peril for physical, mental health, and developmental issues and tend to spend the longest time in the foster care system, little research has been done to explore their experiences and developmental outcomes. In the family described here, birth family members and foster family members of multiple generations partner with Early Intervention services to support a toddler living within the foster care system.
