NSCAW, No. 10: From Early Involvement with Child Welfare Services to School Entry: Wave 5 Follow-Up of Infants in the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being [Note: A revision to Table 4 was made 8/12/10]
This brief provides information about 962 children who were infants (zero to 12 months old) when they first became involved in investigations for abuse or neglect and whose caregivers participated in the Wave 5 follow-up. Some children’s cases were closed after investigation; others had a case opened to CWS services. Although most remained at home after investigation, others were removed from their homes. Five to 6 years after child protective services’ investigation, these children were 5 to 6 years old. This brief is part of a series presenting findings from the NSCAW Wave 5 follow-up.
