Emotional and behavioral problems and severe academic delays among sheltered homeless children in Los Angeles County.
Few studies have estimated the extent of specific emotional, behavioral, and academic problems among sheltered homeless children.
The objectives of this study were to describe such problems, identify those children with the problems, and evaluate the relationship between child problems and use of physical and mental health services.
From February through May 1991, 169 school-age children and their parents living in 18 emergency homeless family shelters in Los Angeles County were interviewed.
