Keesha:  My 60 lb. son came home with bruises, whelps, and scratches after being put in restraints by 3 adults. The school is not acknowledging that they hurt my son. They continue to state the restraint was conducted per their training. I took pictures and took him to the doctor. Can they do this without my consent and should a restraint leave physical marks? I have asked for a new IEP to discuss a plan, but I feel alone and lost. My son doesn’t want to return to school.
