 The HRSA Traumatic Brain Injury Technical Assistance Center has scheduled a Webinar: Children & Youth with TBI: Diversion Programs and Proper Identification and Treatment After Entering the Juvenile Justice System

June 17, 2014  at 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. ET

The webinar will address the following questions:

How do you help a child with an undetected TBI who has entered the juvenile justice system because of behavioral problems? What do juvenile justice personnel, courts, schools, and others need to know to be able to detect a TBI and refer them for appropriate treatment? What are the legal implications?

The webinar will focus on the following topics:

•         National efforts to address the school to prison pipeline

•         Barriers and challenges for youth with TBI in the juvenile justice system, including what happens when they are misidentified or improperly evaluated

•         What HRSA’s Protection and Advocacy (P&A) grantees are doing across various states to divert children from the juvenile justice system and make sure that youth with TBI get referred for appropriate screening and treatment

•         Individual justice planning tools that P&As and others can use to divert children and youth from the juvenile justice system and alternative sentencing options
