Special Needs Children

To be considered a child with "special needs" each of the following statements must be true:

  1. One or more of the following factors or conditions must exist:
  2. The state has determined that the child cannot or should not be returned to parent's home; and
  3. A reasonable but unsuccessful effort was made to place the child for adoption without adoption support. (Other unique conditions may exist in which a child would qualify. Almost every child in the state's Foster Care program qualifies for Adoption Support).
