Incarcerated Youth With Disabilities: Reintegration in to the Community, School, and The Workforce

This webinar will focus on three primary topics. First, we will discuss the unique characteristics of incarcerated youth with disabilities and the implications of those characteristics when providing services within a secure care setting. Next, we will address the Guideposts for Success for incarcerated youth. The Guideposts set forth necessary criteria to support youth reintegration into the community, school, and the workforce. Specifically, the Guideposts address: (1) School-Based Preparatory Experiences; (2) Career Preparation & Work-Based Experiences; (3) Youth Development & Leadership; (4) Connecting Activities; and (5) Family Involvement and Supports. Lastly, we will discuss specific examples of promising practices for practitioners that align with the Guideposts.

Participants are encouraged to interact and ask questions throughout the presentation.
