The CORE of a Good Life: Guided Conversations with Parents on Raising Young Children with Disabilities

There is so much about raising a child with a disability that moves parents and children into clinical and therapeutic realms, that opportunities for more ordinary or natural supports are often missed. In this guide written by Mark Sweet and Molly Murphy many areas of conversation are suggested to help parents invite others to get to know their young and not so young children with disabilities.

Report Released on the Seclusion and Restraint of Wisconsin Children

A press conference was held today in the Wisconsin State Capitol. The press conference was convened by Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW), Wisconsin FACETS, and Wisconsin Family Ties (WFT), who released their brand new report entitled, Out of Darkness…Into the Light: New Approaches to Reducing the Use of Seclusion and Restraint with Wisconsin Children.

Out of Darkness…Into the Light exposes the tragedy of secluding and restraining Wisconsin children in schools and treatment settings throughout the state. It describes the ways in which Wisconsin children have been both emotionally and physically injured by such practices, including one child who died in restraints. It further describes actions taken by many other states to reduce the use of seclusion and restraint of children, and calls for legislative and administrative agency action to protect Wisconsin children from these dangerous practices.
