The Connecticut State Department of Education has released its parental notice form regarding Restraint and Seclusion. This notice must be provided to parents at (1) the first Planning and Placement Team (“PPT”) meeting following the child’s referral to special education and (2) if the child is already eligible, the child’s first PPT meeting after October 1, 2009. The notice must also be provided to parents at the first PPT at which the use of seclusion is included in their child’s IEP. It is recommended that the Notice be provided at each annual review of an IEP, along with the procedural safeguards notice. The form can be found by clicking here.
