Supporting People with IDD Through the Criminal Justice System (w/ Shawn McGill)

Hosted by Milestone HCQU West

Supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities has changed and continues to change. Having
a disability does not make a person exempt from facing the natural consequences of the criminal justice system.
However, this is a unique and vulnerable population of people that requires specialized treatment and support.
This training will discuss how the planning and support of the offender with a disability can begin and what tools and strategies are most beneficial in reducing the risk of re-incarceration. The training will also help the participant learn more about specialized court systems, working with the criminal justice system, and various laws and bills specific to the USA and PA that govern successful community integration.

Shawn McGill holds a certification in Quality Management, Counseling, Gerontology, and is a Certified Investigator under the Office of Developmental Programs. He received a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Carlow University and MSW from the University of Pittsburgh.
