This paper explains that one of the most traditional intervention approaches for foster care children is placing them in a special education class because many children who come into foster care have behavioral, physical and emotional problems that do not allow them to function normally in a standard classroom setting. The author states that as time goes on and the problems of foster care children do not show any great improvement, alternative ideas begin to make their way to the forefront of thinking for those who are involved with foster care children. The paper relates that one of these alternative ideas is to expand the primary care and community-based care for these children, so that they can receive proper healthcare when and where they need it instead of only receiving Medicaid. Another alternative treatment is a mentoring program.
