Disability Screening Assessment Project

The Adelaide Youth Training Centre (AYTC): Kurlana Tapa Disability Screening Assessment project was conducted by the Youth Justice Assessment and Intervention Services (YJAIS) team and partners during March and April 2019. The primary aims of the screening project were to identify the prevalence of disability-related needs in the population to inform both YJAIS service development, and strategic planning for the Youth Justice Services division of the Department for Human Services (DHS).

A total of 36 young people participated in at least one of the multi-disciplinary screening assessments relating to intellectual functioning, cognition, oral language processing, visual motor processing, executive functioning, sensory processing, criminogenic need and mental health. The findings illustrated a very high prevalence of complex disability-related needs which young people in AYTC: Kurlana Tapa live with and experience.
