Synopsis: A randomized clinical trial to examine the effectiveness of intensive in-home therapy in preventing juvenile court placement was conducted for children who were at increased risk of such placement. Two hundred forty families participated in a two year project, with half assigned to the in-home therapy group, and half receiving services usually available in the community. Participants in the in-home therapy group showed trends toward fewer negative juvenile court outcomes, significantly better school outcomes, and more improvement on some functional assessments than did the current practices group. Differences between groups in patterns of change over time are also presented.
