Seldom do the needs of children with disabilities divide neatly along program lines. Instead, children and their families navigate a large, complex, and fragmented array of programs with inconsistent eligibility standards, application procedures, and program goals. "Meeting the Needs of Children with Disabilities" examines these programs, focusing on the three largest—special education, Medicaid, and Supplemental Security Income—and suggests ways to unify them into one system that will provide continuous care and support. Efforts at early intervention and prevention and difficulties caused by programs' funding structures are given particular attention.

About the Author:

Laudan Y. Aron, a senior research associate with the Urban Institute, has conducted national program evaluations, data analyses, and literature reviews for federal agencies and foundations that include the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Labor, Justice, and Housing and Urban Development. She is coauthor of Serving Children with Disabilities: A Systematic Look at the Programs (with Pamela J. Loprest and C. Eugene Steuerle, Urban Institute Press, 1996) and Helping America s Homeless: Emergency Shelter or Affordable Housing? (with Martha R. Burt and Edgar Lee, Urban Institute Press, 2001). She is currently performing a multiyear evaluation of Upward Bound for the U.S. Department of Education.

Pamela J. Loprest, a principal research associate with the Urban Institute, conducts research on policies to enhance the economic well-being of disadvantaged persons, including provisioning means-tested benefits and work supports and addressing the unmet service needs of children with disabilities. She is coauthor of Leaving Welfare: Employment and Well-Being of Families That Left Welfare in the Post-Entitlement Era (with Gregory Acs, W. E. Upjohn Institute, 2004) and Serving Children with Disabilities: A Systematic Look at the Programs (with Laudan Y. Aron and C. Eugene Steuerle, Urban Institute Press, 1996). Her current research focuses on policies to promote work for those with significant barriers, including current and former welfare recipients and adults with disabilities.

Review:

In Meeting the Needs of Children with Disabilities, Aron and Loprest describe the consequences of our failure to integrate medical, educational, and income-support
programs on behalf of children with disabilities and their families. They also point the way toward the elusive but compelling goal of a truly coordinated and family-centered system of care. The authors' unusual approach to examining Medicaid,
special education, and the Supplemental Security Income program in a single analysis makes this book an important source of information for program administrators and policymakers. --Henry T. Ireys Senior Researcher, Mathematica Policy Research
