ABSTRACT: This article will focus on students with disabilities in foster care to help school psychologists identify effective school-based interventions for these students. We will report our findings from three independent studies and then apply the findings to suggest targeted interventions for these students that are intended to improve educational and long-term outcomes. Three intervention targets that emerged from our research and extant literature as particularly influential will be discussed: disability, stability, and relationships.
