In Australia, government policies support therapeutic interventions for children and young people (CYP) with challenging behaviours related to or secondary to disability, who are in out-of-home care. While most studies reported positive outcomes for children and young people, others found no significant change. In light of the complexity of providing services to CYP with behavioural issues and/or disability who are in out-of-home care, the costs associated with these services, and the risks if these are not effective, this review highlights the need the need for further research on the efficacy of support services for this group.
