Seclusion rooms: yes or no?


2013-03-07 11.33.49_Copy REVISED

Where do you stand on the use of seclusion rooms?  What level of noncompliance should result in the use of seclusion rooms?  What are the federal and your state regulations on the use and when they should not be used?

These are questions being asked around the country, especially as we learn more about the ACE on future adults and the use without understanding the “whys” of the student’s behaviors.

I was recently interviewed by the Cedar Rapids (IA) Gazette about this topic after there were reports of seclusion rooms being misused in Iowa City.  Here is my LinkedIn article on it and the link to the original article in the Gazette.

Let me know your viewpoint after reading both of them.
