Abstract

Foster children are at grave risk for academic failure. The psychological problems that can accompany maltreatment and foster care status may result in rejection by and isolation from both peers and adults. This article describes the sources and manifestations of these risks and outlines a role for school social workers. Comprehensive services for this vulnerable population include assessments for learning disabilities; mediation and advocacy with teachers and administrators; and collaboration with other key actors, including biological parents, foster parents, and child welfare workers.
