Or. Admin. R. 416-490-0031 - Time-Out

(1) The purpose of a Time-out Intervention is to temporarily separate a YIC from the YIC's peers due to the YIC's emotional dysregulation until the YIC is emotionally regulated. The YIC must return to regular activities once the YIC is emotionally regulated.

(3) Staff must monitor the YIC every 15 minutes for well-being and possible rejoining with peers. The monitoring must be documented in writing.
(4) A Time-out incident must not exceed four consecutive hours.
