Synopsis: This study examines baseline characteristics/needs and outcomes for children in special education for emotional disturbance (ED) according to presence and level of child welfare involvement. Generally, ED youth with child welfare contact had greater baseline needs and worse outcomes. Children identified as ED and reported for maltreatment but never served by child welfare had the highest rates of poor mental health and behavioral outcomes. Implications for the system of care are discussed.
