Does the Judge Rotenberg Center still give painful shocks for behaviors that are not aggressive? hmm, what did the new director say about this practice in July of 2015:
On our trip to JRC I [Jacob Persico] mentioned to Glenda [the current director] that on Jennifer’s behavior sheet that she would be shocked for getting out of bed without permission. Glenda did not deny it or even say that they have stopped the practice, instead she justified this by saying that shocks are sometimes used on behaviors that are a “precursor” to abusive behavior.
