Abstract:Chapter 4 examined how the state responds to children with a disability by way of protective interventions and whether children with a disability were more likely to enter out-of-home care compared to children without a disability. Children with a disability ages 6 to 10 were more likely to be removed from care following an investigation compared to all other children. Chapter 5 examined whether the stability afforded to children 3 to 9 living with an out-of-home kin caregiver extended to children with a disability. Although these children were more stable than non-kin placements, children with a disability were more likely to disrupt. Chapter 6 provided an overall conclusion to the dissertation by linking each of the chapter's findings together with the overall theoretical model. Future direction of research was discussed, as well as implications for practice and policy.
