Children should be protected from unreasonable restraints, seclusion and searches, ABA House says – Resolution 103 urges governmental bodies to adopt and enforce legislation and educational policies that prohibit school personnel from using seclusion and mechanical or chemical restraints on students in preschool through 12th grade. The resolution, sponsored by the Commission on Disability Rights and Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice, also urges jurisdictions to bar personnel from physically restraining students unless they pose a danger to themselves or others. If other less intrusive interventions are deemed inappropriate or fail and physical restraint is used, the resolution says personnel should not place students face-down or in any position that hinders their ability to breathe or communicate distress.
