Young people make mistakes; they break the law and take risks. And teens who also suffer from conditions like learning disorders can have an especially difficult time when it comes to making good, safe decisions. Sadly, it is not uncommon for young people in California jails to have various types of learning disabilities and special educational needs.
Unfortunately, many jails and juvenile detention centers in the United States only offer a general education curriculum. This can be extremely difficult for special education students who go to jail.
