This module outlines the newly amended rules and regulations developed by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois State Board of Regulation which educators are mandated to follow when using emergency intrusive or restrictive student interventions like time-out, isolated time-out, and restraint.

  • Define basic terms used in the regulations, time-out, isolated time-out, physical restraint, and imminent danger
  • Recognize proactive strategies that reduce the need for time-out, isolated time-out, and restraint
  • Recognize the basic guidelines for implementation of time-out and restraint
