    Some time ago my son Wyatt was held down on the floor by secretaries at Hoosier Road Elementary after the Principal of the school locked him in her office because he wanted to stay and read books while she went to lunch. He couldn't get out when he wanted to leave and freeked out. The secretaries opened the door, held him down on the floor and when the Principal returned he attempted to leave and go back to his special needs room, she pushed him causing an injury when he hit the desk. He recieved disciplinary action imposed by the Principal- she did not. This "episode" is in his file and has been mentioned in subsequent years by those in the "special needs" departments as being a warning to other administrators and teachers to be wary of my son. He is the sweetest kid you will ever run into and he has this black mark in his file due the abuse he suffered in elementary school at the hands of the secretaries and especially the Principal. PARENTS - put a do not seclusion or restraint clause in your IEP's or your child will be punished for something caused by others.
