This webinar highlights the complex needs of youth involved in the juvenile justice system with developmental disabilities and efforts to collaborate across agencies at the state and local level to create meaningful interventions. Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services- Division of Developmental Disabilities (NDHHS-DD) will define what is a developmental disability, how it is diagnosed, and their role in supporting disabled individuals. This will include how statutes impact their services. Probation will focus on the relationship between developmental disabilities and crime, community based resources and case management strategies for maximizing success. This will include the impact of detention, utilization of out of home placement and the response to aggression and non-compliance.
