Challenging and Offending Behaviour by Adults with Developmental Disorders.
Holland, A. J.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v17 n2 p119-26 1991
This paper discusses the assessment of psychiatric and behavior disorders occurring in people with developmental disorders and the problems arising when such behavior results in offenses against the law. The paper argues that a multidisciplinary approach is needed in such cases, given the complex interaction among possible brain pathology, developmental abnormalities, additional disabilities, and environmental factors.
