Locating, Serving, and Supporting Youth with Disabilities Involved in the Justice System
Often, youth involved in juvenile justice or multiple systems (e.g., juvenile justice and foster care) have lower levels of employment outcomes and vocational rehabilitation services engagement. This webinar featured best and promising practices for service delivery, outreach, and support of youth with disabilities who are involved in the justice system or multiple systems. By presenting findings of evidence-based literature on successful interventions for outreach and service delivery, Matt Saleh summarized the state of evidence for practitioners and engaged participants to explore service strategies possible in their settings.
- Understand trends, barriers, and carriers unique to youth with justice- or multiple-systems involvement;
- Explore thematic findings about best and promising practices for outreaching to, serving, and supporting youth with disabilities involved in the Juvenile Justice or multiple systems;
- Discuss strategies for interagency and grassroots collaboration and service coordination across silos and stakeholder groups (e.g., corrections/parole and VR, community organizations, etc.)
