Brain Injury: Disrupting the Revolving Door of the Juvenile Justice System


Session Dates

Wednesday January 27, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM - Webinar

This presentation will highlight data from adult and youth correctional, court and treatment facilities.  This presentation will also highlight a novel model from Colorado that is designed to disrupt the trajectory of youth in the criminal justice system. The Colorado TBI Model is used to identify brain injury history, assess cognitive functioning and psychosocial vulnerabilities and to make recommendations and referrals that support the youth through (and out of) the system.


At the end of this training school district leaders and AEDY Program Administrators will be able to:

  1. Gain an understanding of a model being implemented in Colorado to identify and support individuals with brain injury.
  2. Learn about the 6-year outcomes from this project and plans for sustainability.
  3. To identify the prevalence of brain injury in the adult and juvenile justice system.
