Awareness of the abuse of procedures for seclusion and restraint
Transcript available upon request
In this episode of Policy Matters, we gain awareness of the abuse of such procedures of seclusion and restraint-and a full understanding of what these methods are and their impact primarily on students with disabilities, but in fact on all students. Dr. Joseph Ryan, professor of education in the Eugene T. Moore School of Education will lead the Community Forum panel discussion on the importance of policies protecting these students from inappropriate use of seclusion and restraint. The panel includes Dr. Reece Peterson of the University of Nebraska; Daniel Stewart, an attorney with the Minnesota Disability Law Center; and Bill Lichtenstein, the parent of an abused child.
