Abstract: Children entering into the foster care system more than likely have been neglected or abused. This paper will detail a common disorder associated with foster children. Attachment Disorder (AD) is not commonly discussed before placement, however it becomes obvious within the first two months of placement. A myriad of signs or symptoms can be related to AD and there is debatable literature and discussion regarding the validity of this disorder. This paper will also discuss the difference between AD and RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder). The goal of this paper is to inform potential foster families of behavioral difficulties and the assistance that is available.
