The National Center on Education, Disability, and Juvenile Justice

Examines the overrepresentation of youth with disabilities at-risk for contact with the courts or already involved in the juvenile delinquency system. Provides professional development and technical assistance, conducts research, and disseminates resources in three areas of national significance: prevention of school failure and delinquency, education and special education for detained and committed youth, and transition services for youth returning to schools and communities.
