Faithful readers know that we have been focusing on the Keeping All Students Safe Act and the efforts of Representative George Miller, Senator Tom Harkin and others to put an end to the inappropriate use of seclusion and restraint. What we need this week are stories from individuals who have either experienced inappropriate seclusion and restraint themselves or have had a son or daughter go through this experience.
So if this request applies to you please contact us immediately. When you do, please include the following information:
- Name of Parents:
- Name of Child:
- Contact information for parents (or we can go through their connection to our group if necessary):
- Story in 150-300 words/4-5 paragraphs:
- Aftermath: (retaliation/changing schools/ongoing therapy/etc)
- Links to media stories:
Time is of the essence. We need your stories no later than Wednesday November 13. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
