Bethany’s story came to light a week or so ago.  Whilst many of us in the SEN world are sickened and shocked – at the same time, we are not surprised.  I have the privilege of having her Dad’s permission to share his update.  We are all familiar with the concept of ‘meetings about me without me’… well below is a spectacular version.  Read on for a happier ending than usual.

For those who would like some background:  Beth is locked in a seclusion cell with (10′ x 12′) with one door and no window.  She is 17.  She has been in seclusion for 21 months.  Until recently she had part of a pen in her arm.  I understand that the media outcry at least resulted in this being addressed.  She has her food passed to her through a hatch.
