I have been updating my philosophy for a couple of years now. I am accepting some ideas that I used to deny or reject in my younger years as a Counselor. I'm also studying recent neuroscience that validates some of my older ideas that I had faith in.

Great some data to back restraint free approach is better.
We reviewed thIs report presented to LCPS by VDOE. As disappointed as we are with this report, we are taking the second paragraph into account with the lack of safety and care for special needs children, “As of the date of this report, Virginia has not enacted any regulations governing the use of restraint and seclusion within the elementary and secondary schools within the Commonwealth.”
They are right. While other states have paved the way for better protections for special needs children within public education, the commonwealth has not done this. However we believe this is the time to act. We believe one account of improper use of restraint and seclusion, is one too many. More, importantly we believe in dignity for the child and teachers. This is why Gigi’s Law is our mission.

[ awkward pause] I replied, "Well, that depends..."
