Feature Story

Neurodevelopmental impairment amongst youth in juvenile detention

Ground-breaking Banksia Hill Project found unprecedented levels of severe neurodevelopmental impairment amongst sentenced youth.

A Telethon Kids research team led by Professor Carol Bower and Clinical Associate Professor Raewyn Mutch spent two years working with more than 100 young people aged between 10-17 years who were incarcerated in Western Australia’s only youth detention facility, Banksia Hill Detention Centre.

A paper detailing the team’s findings was published in the BMJ Open.
