I have the CWLA and COA documents that establish the standards. However, I am wondering if there are any studies that look specifically at the relationship between caseload size and child outcomes. I am interested in published or unpublished studies. What happens when caseloads get above the established standards? Do outcomes for children suffer? Which outcomes?
