Transition Services for Juvenile Detainees with Disabilities: Findings on Recidivism
Clark, Heather Griller; Mathur, Sarup R.; Helding, Brandon
Education and Treatment of Children, v34 n4 p511-529 Nov 2011
This study explores the effect of basic versus enhanced transition services on the recidivism of youth with disabilities in juvenile detention. The article describes the transition services provided and shares the results of a year-long, randomized, single blind, quasi-experimental study of post-release recidivism. Results indicate that youth with disabilities who received enhanced services from a transition specialist were 64% less likely to recidivate. Implications are offered for future data analysis and research related to the transition of youth with disabilities from the juvenile justice system. (Contains 7 tables.)
