Tom Lyden of the FOX 9 Investigators

The Seclusion Room

When Kellie Sanders discovered that her son, a special needs student, was spending up to four hours a day, alone in a locked room, she knew something was wrong. Combing through state records, the FOX 9 Investigators discovered more than five thousand cases in the last year when so-called 'Seclusion Rooms' were used with special needs students, many of whom are on the autism spectrum.
