Annotation: The report describes Project LEARN, an educational program to identify the learning disabled (LD) youths who become involved with St. Louis County Juvenile Court (Missouri) and to facilitate their reentry into the educational system.
Abstract: A discussion of the project's theoretical, legal, and agency foundations reviews the LD/JD (juvenile delinquency) link as it relates to program development, cites legal responsibilities for educating the LD child, and discusses the flow of services between the juvenile court and Project LEARN. Referral, assessment, interdisciplinary staffing, and individual educational programs are also considered. A description of the academic and vocational curriculum of the educational program precedes a chapter on treatment, which addresses such aspects as family therapy, family communication workshops, and adolescent counseling groups. A final chapter reviews project organization, management, research, and evaluation. Nearly one-half of the document is composed of 18 appendixes, including sample final education reports and sample project forms. (ERIC abstract modified)
