Up to half the children who begin committing delinquent offenses before age 10 will become chronic, serious, and/or violent delinquents during adolescence. This teleconference will review how research on early-onset delinquency is being used to identify which children in the community are most likely to follow this path and why. Implications for intervention and long-term outcomes for child delinquents will be discussed and new cost-benefit research which indicates that the most challenging children may be the best (not the worst) investment will be reviewed. To participate, dial 703-639-1180 a few minutes before the call begins.
