Young people with neurodevelopmental disorders who are involved with youth justice

Researchers at the Child Health Research Centre are conducting a project looking to gather important information regarding the development and implementation of screening, assessment and support framework for young people with neurodevelopmental disorders who are involved with youth justice. The initial stage of the project is looking to gather information around service needs, barriers and facilitators within the Queensland Youth Justice System.

With your help, we hope to co-design strategies and tools to increase the accessibility of screening, assessment and support services for neurodevelopmental disorders across the Queensland Youth Justice system, to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes young people.

Who can be in the study?

Queensland Youth Justice professionals (e.g. legal advocates, police, staff at the Queensland Department of Youth Justice)

What is required?

You will be asked to complete a brief online survey about your views and experiences working with young people with neurodevelopmental disorders who are involved with the Queensland Youth Justice System. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. There is an option at the end of the survey to volunteer to participate in an interview if you would like to provide more detailed information. Interviews could be completed in person or over the phone.
