The Project

I will be providing direct assistance to court-involved juveniles with special educational needs. In addition to direct assistance, my project will also work with the law enforcement and legal communities including the local mediation center, defense attorneys and judges on ways to incorporate appropriate educational needs and goals in arrests, agreements, defenses and sentences.
