• Time Out, Physical Restraint, and the Continuum of Behavioral Interventions in Schools (AA #3719)


    This academy will review legal issues surrounding the continuum of behavioral interventions available for students with disabilities, focusing on time out and physical restraint under Section 10-20.33 of the School Code and Illinois State Board of Education regulations. The program will discuss these two interventions as "reactive interventions," and will also discuss "preventative interventions" that can help school districts avoid the use of reactive interventions in the first place.

    At the end of this academy, participants will have a greater understanding of the legal parameters for the use of time out and physical restraint, an understanding of the record-keeping requirements for the use of these interventions, and strategies and interventions that can be employed with students in an effort to avoid time out and physical restraint.
