Join The Children's Campaign as they discuss the continued and rising use of seclusion and physical restraints for disciplining children with disabilities in Florida public schools is alarming. There’s no evidence they work in reducing problem behaviors, and the impact can be particularly traumatizing. Nearly 50% of restraints are used on young children (Pre-K to 3rd grade).

Despite a long list of states that have restricted these practices, Florida has yet to pass legislation limiting their use in public schools. This webinar will present an overview of past proposed legislation attempts, racial disparities in their use, and recommendations to align Florida with leading best practices.

Who Should Attend:

  • Candidates
