Autism is leading disability type for students restrained in Aussie schools

A summary of dozens of cases of students with disability who were restrained in Aussie schools and reported to the United Nations shows autism/ASD was the predominant disability among the students.

The report, entitled Summary: Human Rights Violations of Disabled Children in Australian Education settings, is available from https://www.scribd.com/document/31886457... or the links below. 

A group of disability advocacy and support groups came together to produce the report. 

The summary mentions 55 cases. A4 is aware that many more cases were not reported: this report is the tip of the iceberg.
