This is about the barbaric treatment they did to her about 9 years ago. Yes this place is still open, yes they still shock there prisoners (“students”).
This most be by far the cruelest place in the country.
They shock “students” for trivial things too like stimming.
This place is so sick.
SPREAD THE WORD STOP THIS CRUELTY!
Dave posted on his blog Reward and Consent an interview with Anna Kosovskaya about her cruel voile horrible torture they did to her there. I skipped down to the meat of the article (“The Report” section)
This is the very detailed report Dave Altieri interview with Anna Kosovskaya:
Here is the Facebook post:
This is what I commented about the article on Facebook:
I read the report up to section “JRC behavior control methods” so far. They told a student “there’s no crying without appropriate stimulus”. Wow. You did a good job on this report Dave. This is intense. SMH Very sad.
“another program op I had was for a staff to pinpoint an unfair behavior on me and I had to accept the pinpoint” That’s F–ing SICK! What a horrible thing to teach someone. That’s teaching if you are treated unfairly you should accept it. That is so WRONG!
I skipped down for now to LOP (Loss Of Privileges). This I think is more cruel then getting a shock for misbehaving way more cruel. It’s hard for me to come up with words to say how cruel I think LOP is. I wonder if they still do this hideous thing. “when you are on LOP, you can’t do anything, not even speak to anyone”. That is SICK. That is so cruel!!!
This is what the evil viol cruel people at JRC subjected Anna to the horrible cruel LOP for: getting out of bed w/o permission: “my first day I broke for getting out of bed without permission”
That is SO CRUEL. That’s DISGUSTING!
This is very disgusting, if they still do any of these things then they NEED to be shut down ASAP. This is DISGUSTING! This is an OUTRAGE! Why is there not a huge public outcry about this voile extremely cruel inhumane torture!
Excerpt from The New York Times June 23, 1997 printed from microfiche at the Pawtucket RI library page B4 (first column) says:
Although scratching was his primary behavioral problem, he was eventually shocked for 72 actions. These included things B.R.I. felt were part of a “chain” of self-abuse: hiding parts of his body so he could scratch undetected, crossing his legs. But he was also shocked for things more on the order of cantankerous behavior: non-compliance of any sort, yelling, cursing.
He has also been incontinent. At night, an aid woke him every two hours to usher him to the bathroom. If he soiled his bed he would be shocked as he slept. He would be shocked for “tensing up” while asleep. The interrupted nights left him drowsy, but if he dozed during the day, he would be shocked.
The Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) used to be named The Behavior Research Institute (BRI). This article was back when the original director Matthew Israel was running it.
What does the new director Glenda Crooks say about shocking students for non aggressive behavior? Excerpt from my JRC report:
On our trip to JRC I mentioned to Glenda 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.
Glenda Crooks seems to me at least less cruel then her predecessor Mathew Isreal because she stopped some very cruel practices that went on there. (See my JRC report under “Some questions I put together”.)

Do they still give painful shocks for behaviors that are not aggressive?
