Evaluation of Differential Response in Ohio: Challenges in Implementing a Randomized Control Tria

Date: 3/2011

Author(s): Madeleine Kimmich, Linda Newton-Curtis

In 2010, the Quality Improvement Center on Differential Response (QIC-DR), funded by the Children’s Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, began a three-site study of the impact of differential response (DR) on outcomes for children in the child welfare system.

Ohio is one of three sites participating in the study, through a coalition of six counties.
