Special Education Programs for Youth with Disabilities in Juvenile Corrections.


Special education services are available to youth with disabilities in many juvenile correctional facilities in the United States. However in recent years, parents and advocates have challenged the adequacy of services in many states. This article briefly discusses the overrepresentation of youth with disabilities in juvenile corrections, reviews the role of education and literacy in facilitating positive adult outcomes and suggests differential goals for education programs in short-term versus long-term institutions.
