Adolescents with developmental disabilities are a complex population who require specialised treatment and care. This interdisciplinary text examines the processes involved in working with this client group in forensic settings, and explores the ways in which their needs differ from those of other young people who engage in high risk behaviour.

In bringing together the contributors to this book, the Editor has, for the first time, been able to draw together how, across the professionals health, social care, education and justice, practitioners can better meet the needs of a very vulnerable patient group; those adolescents with developmental disabilities and forensic needs...For the first time practitioners have a bench book that will enable them to ensure that they have a framework from which to undertake a comprehensive needs assessment that covers all the domains of a young person's life. It will greatly assist in risk assessment and best risk management. As importantly, any team that could deliver the interventions that are described across this book would be helping the adolescent to fulfil their full positive potential, whilst ensuring when they return to the community, and hopefully their families, that their risk to others would have been minimised.
