Introduction

The AYTC: Kurlana Tapa population Disability Screening Assessment project (herein referred to as the ‘screening project’) aimed to provide insight regarding:

  • The prevalence of disability-related needs in the custodial population
  • The potential impacts of disability-related needs among the population
  • The prevalence of previously undiagnosed disorders within the population
  • The percentage of the population who would potentially be eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • The complexity of disability-related needs within the Youth Justice custodial population, and whether this complexity was associated with the length of time spent in custody.

Additionally, the screening project was intended to inform the development of a multi-disciplinary service model shaping the roles and functions of the pilot YJAIS business unit.
