For Special Education Services, Laws and Practices Evolve

May 20, 2016

A few years ago,  a public outcry forced schools to re-examine their use of seclusion and restraints among students. This hour, we have a conversation with the Office of the Child Advocate about the use of restraints and seclusion in schools. We also hear from a parent of a developmentally disabled student about the challenges she faces in her child’s public school education.


  • Sarah Eagan - Connecticut's Child Advocate
  • Angela Klonoski - Advocate and parent of a child with autism
  • Ron Hager - Senior Staff Attorney for Education at the National Disability Rights Network
  • Dr. Michael Powers - Director of The Center for Children with Special Needs
