Youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Education and the Juvenile Justice System: May 27, 3pm EST

All too often youth come into contact with the juvenile justice system based upon behaviors that happen while they are at school. But what happens when these behaviors stem from an unmet or undiagnosed need stemming from the student's intellectual or developmental disability? Join the Coalition for Juvenile Justice for a webinar at 3 p.m. on May 27 to learn more about ways in which students can be pushed out of their schools, the rights that students with special needs have when these situations arise, and how communities can eliminate unnecessary referrals to the juvenile justice system. 

Presenters will include: 
- Selene Almazan, Legal Director, Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates 
- Diane Smith Howard, Senior Staff Attorney, National Disability Rights Network
