Bill on restraint and seclusion advances in Congress

A House committee voted to advance the Preventing Harmful Restraint and Seclusion in Schools Act that would provide federal oversight of the practices in schools. The bill would prohibit the use of mechanical restraints or any actions that restrict a student's breathing, and it would limit the use of seclusion and restraint to trained staff and to situations where staff or students are in imminent physical danger. The bill must be approved by the full House and Senate. Disability Scoop
