I-Team Given Access to Controversial Seclusion Room

Missouri, February 19, 2009
Legal advocates for children with disabilities are trying to shut down so called seclusion rooms used to calm out of control students with special needs.

NewsChannel 5 first broke this story Tuesday night and by Wednesday, the I-Team's Leisa Zigman was granted access to one of the rooms in question.

Sharon VonHarz said her 11-year-old autistic son was placed in a seclusion room at Hollenbeck Middle School in the Francis Howell School District. She claims he was sent into the room multiple times each week as punishment.
