Unsettling news has surfaced in recent years about the use of restraint and seclusion techniques in classrooms around the United States. These practices have resulted in trauma, injury and even death of children as young as five years old. This day-long workshop will help parents, advocates and teachers understand how to work together to prevent and eliminate the dangerous and traumatizing practices of restraint and seclusion. Participants will leave with the knowledge, handouts, and information kits that will allow them to serve as trainers to other parents and teachers in their home states.Registration detailsThis pre-conference workshop is $85 for TASH members, and $100 for non-members.
