CW108 Child Welfare I - Vocational, Educational, and Career Support

In addition, if a child moves from one home or setting to another, the child may change schools -in fact, some children change schools several times. Given this, children may need additional help and support in the school setting and you may find that teens may need help with vocational and career decisions.
