can a teacher or a teacher aid put hands on a student in special ed, even to put him or her outside on a time out? I heard that there are laws that allow it only if they are certified. does anyone know what this certification is called?"
Only if it is in a behavior intervention plan and only if the aide has been trained in the safe and effective response and techniques. I am a special education teacher with students who exhibit severe behaviors and we have a plan to follow before putting the child in restrictive hold and only in the case where there is imminent harm to the child or to anther person.
