Approximately 65-70% of youth involved with the juvenile justice system have a disability. NCLD’s Unlocking Futures report explores the relationship between youth with disabilities, in particular learning disabilities (LDs) and attention issues, and the juvenile justice system. The report dives into three major issues: how youth with LDs become involved with the juvenile justice system, how the current system serves and fails youth with disabilities, and systemic gaps and structural needs in the field, as well as offers policy recommendations moving forward. In this webinar, we will break down the Unlocking Futures report and its findings with the authors, as well as discuss lessons learned from the process of putting it together.
