Settlement is a process of transition that includes three phases. It begins with a change and ends with a new beginning. Between these two is a second phase of settlement that can be described as a period of confusion and uncertainty when people are adjusting to their new society. During this period, everyone involved in settlement has distinctive needs. In this module we will explore these needs in general and look more closely at the specific needs of the newcomer children.
