Research: Restraint and Seclusion in Manitoba’s Schools

Update: This research project is complete, and Manitoba Education has published a guide for educators and parents for guidance to define and to limit restraint and seclusion in schools.

A researcher at the University of Manitoba is interested in learning about the use of restraint and seclusion in schools from the perspectives of parents/guardians of children with disabilities.

Parents or guardians of a children or youth with a disability who have been restrained or secluded at school in the last 3 years are invited to participate. The goal of collecting this information is to support the development of policy and regulations in the area of restraint and seclusion in the province of Manitoba, as Manitoba does not have provincial education guidelines for schools to regulate and monitor the use of such practices.  

The online survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary, you may opt out of any question in the survey, and all of your responses will be anonymous. If you make additional comments within the survey, your comments may be quoted in the findings of this research in order to provide additional information about parental perspectives on this important issue. However, the additional comments you make also will be anonymous.
