Description

This poster summarizes legal research conducted under a NIDLRR funded knowledge translation grant to the University of Washington. It describes the project, provides background information on the prevalence of individuals with cognitive impairment (TBI and ID) incarcerated in state correctional facilities in the United States, applies the principles of therapeutic jurisprudence to this population, and suggests alternative community-based supports in order to achieve justice for these individuals.
