Awareness of the abuse of procedures for seclusion and restraint


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.

About Policy Matters

Policy Matters, an educational policy TV webcast, is based on the premise that to ensure sustained positive change in the education of our youth, well thought-out policies that encourage student success at all points along the education continuum need to be in place—in local districts, in states, and in federal policy. Clemson faculty and staff, graduate students, local school districts, and state and community leaders are engaged in each program’s development and presentation.
