Case Study Information and Privacy Notice

Thank you for taking part in our family case study project, please find the case study information below and complete the survey the best you can. You can only complete the survey once. When you have submitted your survey at the end you can not edit your answers.


If you have not already done so, we strongly recommend that you complete a FERPA Request for your child’s records. 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. 

There are often records of incidents and/or recording of information that may or may not have been communicated to you regarding your child’s education and time in school. If your child attends a maintained school, parents have an independent right of access to their educational record. You may want to make sure you have your child’s education records before you complete the survey, however this is not a requirement to take part, it’s simply a way of you being fully informed as a parent. More information can be found here:  https://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html

This privacy notice sets out how we use and protect the information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

WHAT WE COLLECT

The only information we hold and collect is the information you have provided us with as per my family case study information survey. We do not ask for any identifying details address, telephone number or contact details. The only information we require is what is in the form. If there is any information you do not wish to share, you are under no obligation to do so. The form is to be completed at your own discretion and you are in control of the information you provide.

If you do not wish to name your School County or State then please simply state “Anon” on the survey.

Once the survey is sent back to us, we print out the data to anonymize, if you have completed a hard copy of this survey we delete your email address and remove any identifying information held.  Please do not send any copies of care plans/letters/minutes from meetings or any photos that can identify you or your child with your survey.

We do not collect or keep any kind of personal information other than the data you have given us as per the only survey or hard copy survey , the case study is completely anonymous.

By sending back the family case study online survey / hard copy survey, you agree to us using this data for the case study project.

The purpose of the case study project is to inform and produce a report or paper with anonymized statistical data. This report or paper can then be shared to inform and improve practice and young people with learning disabilities and the issues around the use of restraint & seclusion.
