Project REST

Project REST (Restraint: Efficacy, Safety, & Training)

With funding from the Developmental Disabilities Council, Office of the Governor, the FRC examined the practice of using restraint on children with developmental disabilities in the public schools. After collaboration with educators, attorneys, psychologists, social workers, child advocates, and parents, Project REST developed a comprehensive guidebook to be used as a resource by parents, educators, and advocates and as a guide in developing protocols and procedures. Project REST endorses the use of Positive Behavior Support as the preferred method to change challenging behavior in children. (View the Manual of Recommended Practice)
