As schools are becoming responsible for more children with severe developmental and behavioral disabilities, more may be using restraints and isolation techniques once seen only in institutions. Staff aren't always adequately trained to handle such problems, and sometimes restraining children may be the only way to prevent them from hurting themselves or others, says Reece L. Peterson, a University of Nebraska special-education professor, who notes there is no clear-cut path on how to handle the issue. The New York Times
