Each day, children are at risk of being injured and traumatized by the use of restraint and seclusion procedures in schools across the United States. These procedures offer no therapeutic or educational value, and have been shown to produce emotional trauma, physical harm and even death. Join YAP and the "Stop Hurting Kids Campaign" in calling for an end to restraint and seclusion in schools.
Stop Hurting Kids is the national campaign to end restraint and seclusion abuse in schools. It was developed to combat abusive practices that can lead to physical injury, trauma and death. For too long students across the U.S. have been at risk of restraint and seclusion techniques that have been proven to hold no educational or therapeutic value, despite evidence-based, positive alternatives.
