Synopsis: A longitudinal study of youth involved with residential treatment or intensive family services in Ontario, Canada revealed that half of RT youth and one-third of IFS youth over 16 were not in school at follow up. More youth in school at follow up had difficulty than at admission. Most youth not in school at follow up were unemployed. These findings support providing academic supports to sustain successful school engagement over the longer term.
