Adults and young people with learning and communication difficulties are over represented in prisons and the secure estate. A recent report for the Children's Commissioner of England and Wales details the range and extent of literacy and speech and language difficulties, specific learning disabilities, and traumatic brain injuries in young people who commit crimes. Diagnosis and support appears frequently not to have been available at an earlier stage.
