Targeted Treatment for Adjudicated Youth with Learning Disabilities: Effects on Recidivism.
Brier, Norman
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v27 n4 p215-22 Apr 1994
The effects of a criminal diversion project on recidivism rates are described for late-age adolescent defendants with learning disabilities (n=73). Recidivism rates were 12% for the project completers, 40% for noncompleters, and 38% for nontreated subjects. The importance of skill development and interventions targeted toward this population is stressed. (DB)
