Recent CBS news story on JRC

Weiss also disputes JRC’s claim shocks are only used for students with self-mutilating or life threatening behaviors. Weiss says documents show children are shocked for behaviors such as refusing to follow directions, getting out of their seat, or simply slouching. “You don’t need to be an expert to know that what they do to people at the Judge Rotenberg Center is wrong,” says Weiss. “If parents did anything close to this to their own child they’d be arrested on the spot.”
