PACLA Condemns Judge Rotenberg Center
The Judge Rotenberg Center is a residential school for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities that is located in Canton Massachusetts. The JRC uses behavioral interventions and ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) to manipulate and control their students. These interventions include aversives, punishments and continued use of electric shock devices. These electric shock devices have been determined as torture by the United Nations. The JRC calls this abuse “therapy” when done to disabled people.
The abuse of disabled people at the JRC has resulted in numerous deaths and in overwhelming pain and trauma for it’s survivors.* Parenting Autistic Children With Love & Acceptance as an organization and community condemns the continued torture of disabled people at the Judge Rotenberg Center.
