Special-needs students help assemble restraints

Posted on October 7, 2013

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — Special-needs students here have been participating in the production of Q'Straint restraints, allowing them to develop job skills and contribute to their own safety in transportation.

Q'Straint reported in a blog post earlier this year that about 60 students from Bright Horizons School have been helping manufacture the company's restraints, performing pre-assembly and packaging of bolts, washers and butterfly fasteners.

All of the buses that serve Bright Horizons — which focuses on autistic and medically fragile students — are equipped with Q'Straint retractors.

“Our kids are helping assemble and package a product that actually supports them in life,” said Stacy Wolfe, vocational coordinator at the school.
