Ildiko:  I am fighting the IEP team that using the AI room for aggressive, imminent danger to himelf or others, or taking my child there after restrain is not ok to use as the Calm room, and he can walk in as he wants. They are different requirements by School Code for a use of AI and a break/calm room. They would not listen, even showing the Law..what do I do

It is not clear to me what is being asked, however please remember, that restraints and seclusions can be avoided when an effective Behavior Intervention plan is written after a functional behavioral analysis is done by a BCBA. A BCBA is trained in the science of determining the function of the students behavior that leads to the perceived need for restraint and seclusion and how to teach the student replacement behaviors in order to avoid the need for restraint and seclusion. This is a data driven research based method that does work.

Restraint and seclusion can cause life long damage to students. Behavioral plans written by qualified professionals need to be developed to support students and the teachers that work with them.

Can you explain to me what difference it makes to your child? I’m not disagreeing with you, just asking you to explain how your child experiences the same room being used for both functions. Thank you.
