This paper discusses how poverty affects the social development, behavior, and academics of children. It also provides information to professionals who work with children to explain how children in poverty may demonstrate increased behavioral and emotional problems.

A case example of a partnership created in Georgia is utilized to help articulate these concepts. The sources cited are all from recent published literature.
