Dear Parent Advocates

APRAIS, The Alliance to Prevent Restraint, Aversive Interventions and Seclusion, is a coalition of 17 national disability advocacy organizations and Families Against Restraint and Seclusion is a member. We are conducting this survey of parents and guardians to establish the extent to which restraint, seclusion and aversive procedures have been used with students with disabilities and special needs (whether served under IDEA or under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act) in public or private schools or in residential facilities. Please pass this on to any families that you think would be interested in filling out our survey

Please note: If you have completed any previous questionnaires on this topic or provided other information, the information you reported will not be included as a part of these results. You must complete this survey for your responses to be included.

The survey will be available for completion until October 12th, 2009. Approximately five to ten minutes will be required to complete the survey.

Thank you.
