Reducing Restrictive Intervention of Children and Young People: Case study and survey results

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation report looks at the use of restrictive interventions on disabled children and young people aged 0-25 in schools. 

Findings from data from 566 case studies collected by Positive and Active Behaviour Support Scotland (PABSS), and results from a Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) survey completed by 204 families include: 88% of the respondents to the CBF survey said their disabled child had experienced physical restraint, with 35% reporting it happening regularly; the PABSS case studies included 1,058 reports of restraint and 544 reports of seclusion.
