Transition for Students with Disabilities in the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems

Students with disabilities are over represented in the Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Systems.  This training webinar (December, 2013) provides information on the laws and regulations for providing transition services for students with special needs in both systems, as well as strategies, tools and action steps for practical application.

The presenting organization is the Juvenile Law Center,which is “the oldest non-profit, public interest law firm for children in the United States. Founded in 1975 by four new graduates of Temple Law School in Philadelphia, Juvenile Law Center has become a national advocate for children’s rights, working across the country to enforce and promote the rights and well-being of children who come into contact with the justice, child welfare and other public systems.”

 

More resources are available at the Juvenile Law Center’s website.
