Assuring the Rights of the Severely Handicapped.
Rogers, Joy J.; Peelle, Judith
One way of monitoring the effects of ethical and legal issues concerning severely handicapped students is establishing an additional level of review in the public schools. The Human Rights Committee (HRC) in one district, composed of multidisciplinary professional and community staff, has reviewed 56 individual behavior management programs considered too restrictive for approval by staff conference alone. The increase in number of behavior programs involving restraints and aversives after the HRC's establishment may be explained by the admission of more severely behavior disordered students in the public school setting and the provision for more in-depth discussion of treatments before they were instituted.
