Juvenile Justice and Special Education Research Forum

Parents, secondary education teachers, and all those in the human services field—as well as the general public—are invited to attend a Juvenile Justice and Special Education Research Forum at Western Illinois University.

The free event will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 20 in Stipes Hall 121.

"Our mission will be to discuss issues related to antisocial behaviors, delinquent behaviors, and the medicated child," explained Barry McCrary, assistant professor of law enforcement and justice administration (LEJA) at Western.

The forum will include a panel discussion to examine the current process by which juvenile justice workers, teachers and academics in different disciplines provide services and/or address antisocial and delinquent behaviors, and to determine if there are valuable insights and procedures that juvenile justice workers, teachers and academics use to address antisocial and delinquent behavior.
