Profiles of Risk No. 8: School Readiness

5/2012

This brief, the eighth in the “Profiles of Risk” series examining characteristics of homeless families in the United States, explores differences in the school readiness of children by their housing status. Children who ever experienced homelessness in their first five years exhibit higher behavioral and attention problems and score lower on cognitive tests than their stably housed peers. These findings suggest that children who experience housing instability enter school less ready to learn than their stably housed counterparts.
