Learning Impairment and Brain Dysfunction among Sex Offenders

A/Prof. Ron Langevin PhD

The incidence of brain damage and dysfunction and associated learning impairment are examined in a forensic database of over 2500 sex offenders. Results show that grade failures in public school, high school dropouts, placement in special education classes for children with learning and emotional problems are significantly and substantially higher than seen in the general population.
