Restraint & Seclusion
 

Restraint hurt my child. Unlawful restraint performed could have killed my child. No documentation showing seclusion of any kind & restraint  in her cumulative file prior to Feb. of 2018. She has been a student since 2010. There is only 1 documentation of restraint and it is so poorly written and the lack of info in it would surprise you. We have filed a complaint and it has been ruled in our favor. From the lack of documentation, to the REASON to even perform the restraint, to the way it was performed. Two people were responsible for this one incident. And I’ll leave you with this- between them- their combined teaching experience- Special Education & Adminstrative they exceed 40 years.
