Mum of Disabled Child Calls For National Guidance on Restraint and Seclusion in Schools

A Dundee mum fighting to change the way disabled children are restrained by their teachers has welcomed the latest comments by Scottish politicians debating her case.

Mrs Morrison alleges her son, who has epilepsy, autism and cerebral palsy, was injured because of restraint used at the school and is now calling for a change in the law.

 The Scottish Government’s Public Petitions Committee is considering her case for national guidance on restraint and seclusion in schools and has agreed to take on one part of the petition and to develop such guidance in Scotland.
