Register for a Free LIVE Webcast OCTOBER 18th at 2:00 ET on “Representing Teens with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in the Juvenile Justice System”

The seminar will be presented by:
Diane Smith Howard, Staff Attorney for Juvenile Justice and Education Issues,National Disability Rights Network (NDRN)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can present a unique constellation of needs that may require different treatment approaches than those provided in traditional youth serving systems.   This webcast will discuss how TBI is a factor in P&A Juvenile Justice, community integration and education work.  Significant time will be allotted for audience questions and participation.

Some topics to be covered include:

•         In the juvenile justice system, how does TBI impact the provision of mental health and education services, diversion, probation, and conditions of confinement? 

•         In the child welfare system:  The child welfare system is a key conduit into the school to prison pipeline.  How can P&As assist youth placed in group homes, ICFMRs, and other institutional settings in obtaining the community services they require to be successful? 

•         In the public education system: How can P&As ensure that eligible youth are provided FAPE and obtain key disciplinary protections when they are needed? Do they obtain meaningful transition plans?
