NDTAC Practice Guide on Addressing the Needs of At-Risk Children

NDTAC Practice Guide on Addressing the Needs of At-Risk Children
The National Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the Education of Children and Youth who are Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk (NDTAC) developed this practice guide entitled, Early Learning Is Essential: Addressing the Needs of Young Children Potentially at Risk for System Involvement. This guide examines the principle that early learning is essential for children and focuses on helping children avoid involvement in the juvenile justice and/or child welfare systems. Four new practices, along with strategies for their implementation, are suggested in this guide: (1) Conduct Early Identification of Vulnerable Children; (2) Provide Access to Evidence-Based Early Intervention Practices; (3) Promote and Identify Authentic Family/Caregiver Involvement and Collaboration; and (4) Ensure that Vulnerable Young Children Begin School Ready to Succeed.
