The Council for Children with Behavior Disorders of the Council for Exceptional Children will present a Webinar 8 March 2012 entitled “Physical Restraint and Seclusion in Schools: Issues, Policies and Practices.” This is a terrifically important issue for practitioners and administrators.
Federal legislation is pending that, if passed, would regulate the use of physical restraint and seclusion procedures for students in school settings. This webinar will discuss the legislative, policy, and practice issues that have arisen because of the deaths and injuries of students due to these procedures. The webinar will provide an overview of the content that will be covered in more detail during the strand on restraint and seclusion at the CEC Convention & Expo in April 2012.
The session, which runs from 4:00PM – 5:00PM ET, requires registration for a fee ($114; save lots if you’re a CEC member!). Visit the CEC page devoted to the CCBD Webinar on seclusion and restraint to learn more. Entire teams can register for the price of one and later download the slides for review.
