Transition Practices for Adjudicated Youth with E/BDs and Related Disabilities
Clark, Heather Griller; Unruh, Deanne
Behavioral Disorders, v36 n1 p43-51 Nov 2010
Reentry outcomes for formerly incarcerated youth are dismal. The challenges these youth face are even further intensified when they have learning or emotional and behavioral disabilities. Successful transition services need to be initiated in the correctional facility and continue in the community. This article discusses interventions designed to aid the reentry of formerly incarcerated youth into their communities. Gaps in existing service delivery are identified. Guiding principles for effective reentry programs and specific strategies focused on increasing employment and continuing education, both while incarcerated and when released, are highlighted.
