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.
Last month, parents of a special needs student filed a lawsuit against their daughter’s high school for mistreatment by the special education teacher.
A child with learning disabilities or special needs benefits greatly from added services and assistance in the classroom. And when these resources are tailored to a child's needs as closely as possible, there can be a greater opportunity for academic success.
