Child Welfare
Today, ZERO TO THREE and Child Trends released a new report presenting findings from a 2013 survey of state child welfare agencies about their policies and practices for addressing the needs of infants and toddlers who've been maltreated. Changing the Course for Infants and Toddlers: A Survey of State Child Welfare Policies and Initiatives finds that the one-size-fits-all approach adopted by most states does not work in meeting the unique developmental needs of many of the 200,000 infants and toddlers who come into contact with the child welfare system each year.
New Research
The electronic version of the Handbook of Child Well-Being: Theories, Methods and Policies in Global Perspective was published this month by Springer, providing readers with an in-depth overview of the concept of children's well-being, how it is approached by different disciplines, problems of politics and program implementation, and more. Chapters by Child Trends authors include"Indices of Child Well-Being and Developmental Contexts" and "Positive and Protective Factors in Adolescent Well-Being."

For kids, health problems can lead to academic problems, and good health has been positively linked to good grades. The Affordable Care Act, passed in 2010, will support the health of America's children and youth through three major school-based strategies: school-based health centers, school-community health partnerships, and support for expectant and parenting teens. Learn what this means for schools, parents, and their children in our latest blog post. 
After the Leap Conference
Building a Performance Management Culture
If you run a nonprofit organization, this is the conference for you. "After the Leap" is a two-day conference that will help executives learn more about outcomes measurement, performance management, and organizational change, hosted by PerformWell (a partnership of the Urban Institute, Child Trends, and Social Solutions) and Leap of Reason. Experts in performance management will share their hard-won successes with leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to help advance the field.
