Child Welfare Considerations for Children with Disabilities

Children with disabilities are an especially vulnerable group within those children and youth who are at risk for maltreatment. In this web-based training, the benefits to early identification of disabilities and potential risk factors for parents and children are explored. Since it is likely that child welfare professionals will work with children with disabilities, the importance of collaboration with partners and connection to resources is stressed.
