    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. The aims of interventions are to enhance the skills of both CYP and foster caregivers/parents in order to enhance placement stability, community participation and the overall well-being of the CYP. These interventions are costly and time consuming for CYP, their foster caregivers/parents and the professionals/agencies involved, and evaluation of their effectiveness is warranted.
