If it is not appropriate for their peers (regular ed and special ed), it should not be appropriate for this group.

It will be very hard for you to break this cycle. I would emphasize who they can hug and kiss (Mom, Dad and Grandma, etc.). Also, you probably need to teach self-soothing behaviors if the students rely on an adult to help calm themselves.

If staff balks, ask them to imagine a 200-pound 16-year old with bad body odor and acne trying to sit on their lap.

Been there, done that. It is going to be hard, but it is best for the kids.
