Abstract

The Ontario Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect, 2013 (OIS-2013) is the fifth provincial study to examine the incidence of reported child maltreatment and the characteristics of children and families investigated by child welfare authorities in Ontario. This Information Sheet examines the characteristics of children and youth who are investigated by child welfare authorities and determined to have academic difficulties in Ontario. Children and youth who are involved in the child welfare system are at increased risk of poor academic outcomes.
