New Hampshire-Maine Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities Trainee Program (NH-ME LEND)


The Coalition for Restraint and Seclusion (C.A.R.S.) is a group of stakeholders whose mission is to prevent the overuse of restraints and seclusion within the educational setting. As part of my training with the New Hampshire-Maine Leadership in Education in Neurodevelopmental Related Disabilities Program (LEND), I have been working with C.A.R.S. to update their resources and parent education materials. We created a series of short informational videos which will be accessed via the internet, in order to provide materials which are easily digestible and accessible for parents. My poster will provide descriptions of the content included in each of the videos, and I will share a video sample during my presentation. For this project, I assisted in developing the video concept, recording the videos, and editing the videos. As a parent with a child who has special needs, I was able to provide a necessary perspective in developing the content of the videos. My role in the recordings was to interview a special education advocate and develop questions which are pertinent to families who are interested in learning more about restraint and seclusion.
