i received a letter from the principle explaining how she had to restrain difficult child for 10 min last wk. he had climbed on a file cabinet and she had to drag him down and he was kicking and hitting and he hit her in the pelvic area(she said grabbed inappropiately but really he is 6 and it was just a lucky shot in my opinion as she is a tall lady). anyway she wrote that he was restrained for 10 min cuz he wouldn't calm down. well helloooooo he was trying to get away. i have never had to restrain him for more than 3 min. at that point even if he is struggling he is fine to let go and allow him the chance to hide and calm down. this has been an ongoing issue that they still do not know how to restrain properly. so my ? to you is do i revoke my permission for restraint especially seeing that when the priciple is involved it almost always escalates or do i only give permission for someone else to restrain. there are only 4 wks left of school and he is starting today with-another aid and will be in the resource room(Special Education help room for the school). see they have pulled him from the classroom cuz of the 'educational needs of the students in the class'. hey you put him there i told you the regular classroom was too much and now she i making it as if it is all his fault! sorry this is turning into a rant cuz i am just so darn po'd right now. the sd are the ones who checked regular classroom on the iep. they are the ones who insisted this new teacher would be better. well guess what that teacher does not want him in the classroom now either. so i have 2 teachers who have basically kicked him out of their rooms and i can't blame them after being kicked and hit and the other kids schooling being disrupted. i feel so helpless!!!
