Too Important Not To Share!

How do you feel about the use of seclusion and restraint in your child's schools?  Were you aware that your child's teacher and physically restrain your child, lock them in a closet or other room and face no legal action? 

This summer, Dylan was injured (slightly) when someone unnecessarily restrained him.  We had no legal recourse against her.  Keeping All Students Safe Act, S.2020 will change that!

Please see this post over at OUR Journey Thru Autism and let Jessica know your thoughts on the matter.  Even if you don't have a story to share, if you support this bill (how could you not?), please email Jessica and spread the word!


  1. I sent a letter! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I know that as foster parents we would face sanctions and probably lose our license if we did that sort of thing to a child in our care; I cannot believe that trained professionals are not only allowed to do this but actually do! How is something that is abuse in when private done by caregivers not abuse when done in public by educators? I will be passing this along too.
