Juvenile Justice and Students with Disabilities: Profiles of Several State Initiatives. inForum
Muller, Eve
Project Forum
Youth with disabilities are significantly overrepresented in the juvenile justice system with recent estimates suggesting that at least 35% of youth in the juvenile justice system are eligible for special education services (Quinn, Rutherford, Leone, Osher & Poirer, 2005). Specific learning disability, emotional disturbance and mental retardation are the most prevalent disability categories among members of this population (Quinn et al., 2005). A number of states have developed initiatives to better meet the needs of these students and the purpose of this study is to provide a snapshot of several of these initiatives. Project Forum at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) conducted this study as part of its cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
