Youth in juvenile correctional facilities often have significant educational, mental health and medical needs. Unfortunately, these complex needs are not always adequately or properly addressed within the corrections system. This conference will offer solutions to help address the needs of youth with disabilities in the juvenile justice system, including approaches being implemented to assist the youth to make better decisions in the future.
