Event Description

The Future of Children hosted a press event for the release of our new volume, Children with Disabilities. Findings from this issue were presented by issue editor Janet Currie of Princeton. Ron Haskins, Senior Fellow and Co-Director of the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution, presented a summary of the corresponding policy brief, which focuses on Supplemental Security Income for children with disabilities. A panel of practitioners and policy makers responded to the research and engaged the audience in a lively discussion about the best ways to support children with disabilities and their families.
