TASH Model State Bill on Restraint and Seclusion

TASH has led the fight against the use of aversive behavioral interventions for many years. Last year, the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights data collection reported that restraint and seclusion use is climbing in public schools. Use is disproportionate: 75% of all incidents involve students with disabilities, and children of color with and without disabilities are twice as likely to be targeted compared to other students. Research tells us that restraint and seclusion serves no benefit, and is traumatic and dangerous for children and for staff. 

ReClaiming Children 25th Anniversary Commemorative Issue

For our 25th annual conference, we put together a special commerative issue of the Reclaiming Children magazine. In early 2014, we released a newly reformatted newsletter. This rebranding was an effort to turn the growing newsletter into a full fledged magazine. We received great feedback on the change.
