Restraint and Seclusion


School officials can restrain and seclude a student with or without Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD), if they feel he or she is being unruly or causing harm to themselves or someone else. More children with I/DD are being restrained or secluded than children without I/DD. In Michigan, there are guidelines and policies on restraint and seclusion, but they are not being carried out by some schools.
