One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?" His grandfather answered "The one you feed the most."

A family in my neighborhood once brought in two cocoons that were about to hatch. They watched as the first one began to open and the butterfly inside squeezed very slowly and painfully through a tiny hole that it had chewed in one end of the cocoon. After lying exhausted for about ten minutes following its agonizing emergence, the butterfly finally flew out the open window on its beautiful wings. The family decided to help the second butterfly so that it would not have to go through such an excruciating ordeal. So, as it began to emerge, they carefully sliced open the cocoon with a razor blade, doing the equivalent of a Caesarian section. The second butterfly never did sprout wings, and in about ten minutes, instead of flying away, it quietly died. The family asked a biologist friend to explain what had happened. The scientist said that the difficult struggle to emerge from the small hole actually pushes liquids from deep inside the butterfly’s body cavity into the tiny capillaries in the wings, where they harden to complete the healthy and beautiful adult butterfly.

Module 5 defines restraint in Texas Gives limitations and discusses who can legally use restraint States that any person who works with a special education student who has a Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) or any student that is likely to need physical restraint MUST be trained in the district approved restraint course, which is SAMA This can include administrators, special education, regular education teachers, paraprofessionals, special area teachers, bus drivers and other school personnel
Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) Requires a Functional Behavior Assessment Required for every student who has the educational diagnosis of ▪ Autism ▪ Emotionally Disturbed ▪ OHI for AD/HD (Type I, II or combined) If you work with these students you must be SAMA trained
Take the Initial Class (1 day) Class is good for one year, then 1/2 day refresher Can refresh ONCE before returning to the initial class Advanced Protection is also offered if needed
You have 30 days to get trained after you have put your hands on a special education child to keep them safe in an emergency
