Neuro-disability in young offenders – children's watchdog report

Written by The Children's Commissioner

A report for the children's watchdog for England highlighted the large numbers of young people in children's prisons in England who had neuro-developmental difficulties, such as brain injuries, that could result in communication difficulties, cognitive delays, learning difficulties, and emotional and behavioural problems. The watchdog called for earlier recognition of, and vital improvements in the treatment and support of, young people with neurological conditions.
