Young Offenders: Early Intervention for Students with Behavioral and Emotional Disorders
Hammond, Helen; Ingalls, Lawrence
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v6 n4 p27-32 Jul-Aug 2009
The value of early intervention programs for children with delays and/or disabilities has been well accepted in the research. Providing appropriate special education services at an early age of detecting academic and behavioral/social problems has proven to be effective at eliminating or decreasing special services at a later age. This presentation will discuss the types of educational services provided to young offenders who are now incarcerated at a state prison. A description of 30 male inmates' academic history will be provided and patterns regarding the history will be discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
