The Word is Getting Out

Restraint and seclusion in Missouri schools should only be used as a last resort. "Safe rooms" are not safe. I would honour the original blogger who pointed this webpage on her blog but I think she wants to be anonymous in her efforts to put this practice to rest. I will honour her anonymously anyway.

I have had but a small part to play in this, as I have made a formal complaint about my autistic Elf's treatment in so-called "Safe rooms" at the local elementary school. I hope that this practice is STOPPED in all schools. I can think of very, very few times where such restraint is warranted. And surely, our "overcrowded" schools could use the closet space for something else.

  1. Am glad to hear the word is getting it, but like you hope the practice is stopped.
    We dont as far as i know over here have them, so was shocked when i first read about them on a blog.
