Below are some of the resources we are making available to help you in your efforts to reduce and eliminate the use of restraint and seclusion.
We are working to compile data on the number and types of disciplinary actions (restraints, seclusion, suspensions, expulsions, etc…) across schools, to assess the link between these data and the type of behavioral intervention employed by each school (coercive, controlling, comforting, trauma-informed, etc…).
You are welcome to use our graphics to support your efforts to reduce and eliminate restraint and seclusion.
Please include a link back to our website, where possible, if you are using our graphics.
