[Purpose] Juvenile delinquency is usually thought without connected with developmental disorders. In the words of clinical delinquency, professions had not these view points. We tried to investigate the awareness of judicial officers for clarifying the connection between juvenile delinquency and developmental disorder.
[Methods]We inquired about the actual conditions between Juvenile delinquency and developmental disorder from the ex-investigator of family court and the officer of judgment in active.
Especially we try to clarify the negative role of school in Juvenile delinquency.
[Results]Many investigators of family law court had psychological background. Usually they thought that the factors of family were most important for cause of juvenile delinquency.
Some investigators (ex : Yohko Fujikawa, investigator of Tokyo family court) noticed that juvenile delinquency is crossly linked to developmental disorders. But the investigator had the duty of confidentiality, and they could not study
In school the principal has big power to control the children and the teacher in public educational system, Many school had the same attitudes that the children with delinquencies was abandoned and not supported.
The veteran officer of judgment thought the cross linkage between juvenile delinquency and developmental disorder. Especially Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) had high risk of juvenile delinquency. Some children with pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) had minimal risk of non-prospective delinquencv.
The cases sent to Juvenile Classification Home could not be diagnosed as developmental disorders. The cases with early interventions could not develop to juvenile delinquency. In school counseling, the attitudes of psychologists including acceptance and sympathy were unsuitable for the children with developmental disabilities. The developmental profiling and necessary supports are useful for them.
In the words of clinical juvenile delinquency, some professional officers had the cross relation between juvenile delinquency and developmental disorder. Also, they recognized the important role of school for the children with developmental disabilities and risk factors for juvenile delinquency. The school counseling and acceptant psychological approaches could not effect for them. Less
