Sharing re restraints and women with Rett’s

I just wanted to share this posting by Rett syndrome Australia regarding restraints and people with Rett syndrome.
I think it a really important statement in light of hand restraints being indiscriminately removed from women with Rett’s in the absence of a strong evaluation examining the individual pros and cons of their use.
I think there is a time, place, and person for restraints – cases need to be examined individually rather than an ideal being applied to all.
