The report describes Project LEARN, an educational program to identify the learning disabled (LD) youths who become involved with juvenile court and to facilitate their reentry into the educational system. Chapter 1, on the project's theoretical, legal, and agency foundations reviews the LD/JD (juvenile delinquency) link as it relates to program development, cites legal responsibilities for educating the LD child, and discusses the flow of services between the juvenile court and Project LEARN. Referral, assessment, interdisciplinary staffing, and individual education programs are among the topics considered in chapter 2. The academic and vocational curriculum of the educational program are described in a third chapter. Chapter 4, on treatment, addresses such aspects as family therapy, family communication workshops, and adolescent counseling groups. A final chapter reviews project organization, management, research and evaluation. Nearly one-half the document is composed of 18 appendixes, including sample final educational reports and sample project forms. (CL)
