Watch the recording: https://bit.ly/isolation_restraint

Isolating students in schools creates harm that is lifelong and disabling.

In this free webinar, we will spotlight findings from a new ACLU/Disability Rights Washington report and an Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)-led legislative workgroup report on isolation and restraint practices in Washington state and discuss the impacts of isolation in K-12 schools, why this practice must end, and alternatives to isolation.

Spanish and ASL interpretation and closed captioning in English will be provided.

Panelists include:

* Mina Barahimi Martin, Policy Analyst at the ACLU of Washington
* Andrea Kadlec, Attorney at Disability Rights Washington
* Eric Warwick (she/her), Community Advocacy Coordinator at The Arc of King County who experienced restraint and isolation as a special education student and has worked as a paraeducator
* Lee Collyer, Director of School Health and Student Safety at the Washington state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)
* Nikki Otero Lockwood, Vice President of the Spokane Public Schools Board of Directors
* Kayla Korves-Bishop, Special Education Teacher at South Shore PreK-8 in Seattle Public Schools
