"I don't think anyone understands why a special education teacher and a psychologist would think this is OK," said Candace. She said Unity House officials claim she and her husband were made aware of the comfort box by Football Cleats Purple And Gold
Burke said reports like this are made around the region and the country and do not always have any merit.
Candace and Matthew Fox say they were first told about the use of this box by CPS officials last Friday after someone at the Fourth Street Unity Sunshine program complained about what was going on.
It is unclear how long their child was asked to go in the box, but a timer was apparently used, said Candace, citing her child's account of the incident. It is also unclear how many times the child went in the box. It appears, however, that her child was the only student in the class asked to do so, Fox said.
While the CPS investigation has not yet concluded, the Foxes believe this practice might have started a couple of months ago when their child got a new special education teacher. It also coincides with when their child's behavior started to change and instead of seeing progress, as they had previously seen in the Unity Sunshine program for the past two years, their child's behavior became worse, Candace explained.
She was told by teachers with the program that there have been two such boxes. One, the size of a refrigerator, was thrown out apparently by a teacher who did not agree with the tactic and it was replaced with a smaller box, which was found by the CPS.

Unity House CEO Christopher Burke said he could not get into any details about specific cases or children.
In Unity House's 40 years, CPS has investigated before. Burke would not specify if anything had been found during prior investigations. He anticipated CPS' final report to be done in about one month.
Parents aren't so cozy with use of comfort box to discipline their child
"It's messed up," said Candace summarizing the situation. She and her husband have now retained an attorney and intend to file a lawsuit against Unity Soccer Shoes Photos House, which operates that facility along with two other similar sites in Troy and one in Albany.

techniques. "It did not mention laying a box on the ground, closing it and then putting something on top so [my child] couldn't get out."
Unity House could not even confirm the 5 year old placed in the box, who has ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome, attends the Unity Sunshine program due to its confidentiality policy.

In this case, said the Foxes referring to a CPS document, school psychologist Catherine Guthrie and special education teacher Wendy McGuffey are being investigated for their possible role in either allowing or instructing the Fox's child to use the box on multiple occasions.
From explanations online and from education and therapy professionals, a comfort, a calm or a break box is meant to be a place where a child feels safe, can express feelings, and regain his or her composure before resuming an activity. It is supposed to have three walls and one open area so the child is not completely enclosed or in the dark.
But there's an ongoing Child Protective Services investigation into two Unity Sunshine employees who may have been using the therapeutic box technique as a form of punishment and confining a 5 year old with special needs in an enclosed cardboard box about the size of a standalone freezer.
