Children with Disabilities 2 Abstract The purpose of this study compares placement rates for two groups of children, disabled and non-disabled children, in order to understand whether disability is a predictive factor in reunification. Currently, children with a disability are 3.76 times more likely to be neglected than non-disabled children and children with a disability are 3.79 times more likely to be abused than non-disabled children. The undertaking of this study will provide insight into whether receiving social services play a role in parents reunifying with their disabled child. This study will utilize a mixed methods approach in order to highlight both aspects of the qualitative and quantitative analyses. The quantitative component will consist of 45 participants who will be asked to complete a survey. The two instruments that will be administered are the Parent Child Relationship Inventory (PCR) (Boothroyd, 1996) and Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAP) (Milner, 1986). The qualitative component will consist of 25 participants who will be asked to engage in an in-depth interview. The multivariate logistic regression model will be used to assess the association between disability along with other independent variables and placement. The research will be conducted at a confidential agency. Some implications may include more secondary intervention and tertiary prevention that need to be developed, the increase in programs for parents to access respite care to prevent future problems, and the need for disability training at the pre-natal stage to decrease the number of maltreatment cases of disabled children.
