high risk placements

Adoptive placements that have a high probability of DISRUPTION; almost exclusively refers to the placement of children with SPECIAL NEEDS who are older or who suffer medical or mental disabilities; not to be confused with AT RISK PLACEMENT.

The age at which a child is considered a high risk placement varies from state to state, but most states consider the placement of a teenager to have a high level of risk.
