Subject:RE: Question to post

Hi Chris, I am referring to all foster parents, regardless of the kinds of children they care for, but not biological parents. Thanks, Kate ________________________________ Date: Thu, 5 Nov 2015 10:36:55 -0600 Subject: Re: Question to post From: eclloyd@ualr.edu To: child-maltreatment-research-l@list.cornell.edu Ms. Schumaker, Parents of children with significant medical needs may receive respite care, and I believe this sometimes includes psychiatric/behavior disorders. Are you referring to this group or to foster parents of children without specific diagnoses or other documented medical/behavioral need?
