Some 15 to 30 per cent of our children and youth are at risk of failing in school where learning and behaviour problems touch ever-younger children. In many countries with very different political and cultural backgrounds, these challenges are being met by increasing the co-ordination of education, health and social services, a process often galvanized by a broader involvement, extending to business and senior citizens. This is more than merely tinkering with statutory systems of service provision. Current services and need are mismatched; our vision of the family and its needs is changing along with the balance between prevention and remediation, and the ways that professionals work together. This book draws on reports and case studies from 14 OECD countries. It addresses the implications of integrating services for children and families at risk. How are the legal and policy frameworks of social reform changing? What is going on at every level from conception to implementation? What are the implications of the reforms? The vision here is broad, and covers pre-school, school age and transition to work.
