Seclusion and Restraint

Regulations that address using seclusion and restraints were established to protect the safety of ALL students, not just students with disabilities. Schools must follow guidelines to establish local policies and school personnel must receive training for the safe and rare use of seclusion and restraint with students who pose imminent danger to themselves or others. This training will review seclusion and restraint rules and definitions, outline the training and monitoring requirements of those rules, and provide options if parents have questions or concerns about the application of those rules in their school district.

Presenter:  Nicole Hicks, IN*SOURCE Team Leader/Special Education Liaison and member of the Commission on Restraint and Seclusion.

Thursday, December 1 - 1:30-3:00 p.m. EST
