I have worked with children with disabilities and know that " theraputic hold" is a nice way of saying. Pinning down a child or adult that is aggressive to the point they are a harm to themselves or others, it could mean laying atop the child. This is a taught practice meant to prevent that person from harming themselves or others. We dont know the whole story yet.. I would say dont read this and say omg a 5 year old with a teacher breaking an arm. Children with disabilities are just that .. sick with possible brittle bones who could possibly have a mental disorder or condition. That child could have been trying to harm or kill someone else in that case a broken arm is not so bad. If a child with a mental illness gets angry and out of control and has feelings perhaps they could " kill someone" because they are so upset, that child perhaps cannot distinguish they cant actually do it. I have seen times 3 or 4 staff members being unable to picc or theraputically hold a child that has gotten to that no return point, but as I said we dont know the whole story. The teacher could have genuinely been helping that child or preventing the child from hurting itself or others.
