Dana Renay, Chief Executive Ally for the Autism Society of Indiana is a member of the Indiana Commission on Seclusion and Restraint, along with representatives from the non-public schools, public schools, Mental Health America – Indiana, Arc of Indiana, Department of Education, ICASE, and parents of children with and without special needs.
The Commission has started developing a model plan that schools could use to make sure they have all of the required elements within their seclusion and restraint plans. The Commission then developed rules to accompany the bill to help define how the seclusion and restraint plans should be written. From there, the Commssion realized that it would be helpful for not just schools, but also parents, to have a list of resources and guidance about the legislation, the policy, and other supports.
Have you read your school’s plan for the use of seclusion and restraint?
ASI is interested in your thoughts about your school’s plan on seclusion and restraint, and have put together a short questionnaire to get a sense of what is out there right now. We are not trying to point fingers, we are hoping to find out if there is anything we can do to help educate families and others about seclusion and restraint.
