Crisis Intervention Resources
The CASE leadership recognizes the need for special education administrators to have access to resources to support schools in their work with students and staff when impacted by crisis situations. As a service to our members we have compiled a list of excellent resources from various sources that may be helpful to administrators in their roles of supporting students and staff. Please understand this is not an exhaustive list…if you know of other good resources, please let us know and we will add them to this site.
NOTE: These sites were all active as of January 4, 2013.

The purpose of this resource document is to present and describe 15 principles for state, district, and school staff; parents; and other stakeholders to consider when states, localities, and districts develop policies and procedures which should be in writing on the use of restraint and seclusion (by kym at testsforge). This resource document discusses the context within which these principles were developed, lists the principles, and highlights the current state of practice and implementation considerations for each principle.
Additionally, this document provides a synopsis of ongoing efforts by federal agencies to address national concerns about using restraint and seclusion in schools. Two attachments at the end of this document provide information about state policies on the use of restraint and seclusion in our nation's public schools and an annotated resource guide on the use of restraint and seclusion in schools.

- Disseminate useful, timely, & relevant information to improve services to children with disabilities by applying findings that facilitate systemic changes in policy, procedure, practice and the training and use of personnel;
- Provide OSEP with a mechanism and resources for analyzing policies and emerging issues that are of significant national concern.
