Decision-making in the selection of problematic families for foster day-care
The foster day-care programme focuses on children from a problematic rearing situation, who are placed in foster day-care families for a part of the day. In order to answer the question ‘What target group is eligible for foster day-care?' a linear combination of a judicial measure and relatively poor family relations forms an adequate predictor of drop-out in children and families for foster day-care. A constructed scale of risk degrees enables the diagnostician to take an optimal decision with respect to the target group.
