A child in foster care with whom Child Start was working had a diagnosed disability. The child was violent in class and wouldn't follow directions. Due to the family's situation, the child missed a lot of school. The team completed a multi-disciplinary case management including managers, teachers, family advocate, community partners and parents to discuss strategies for helping the child to thrive and to reunify the family.
The child was reunified with her parents who met the conditions of their family case plan. Now the child comes to school happily, with her parents using the same type of classroom routine successfully at home.
