Two UN Special Rapporteurs on Torture condemn Judge Rotenberg Center's Applied Behavior Analysis electroshock "torture" of autistics and others.

[Edit note June 6, 2017. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture says in this TV interview that the United States is not permitted to skin shock terrorists the way Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) legally shocks autistics and others at the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) of ABA's extremely painful electric skin shock torture school and houses in an around Canton, Massachusetts. The FDA proposed a ban on these ABA devices, but they haven't issued the final ruling yet. Please contact your Congressional representative and urge them to urge the FDA to finish it. The seventh death in JRC's timeline was the unborn baby of a seventeen-year-old girl while there at JRC, according to the Massachusetts Disabled Persons Protection Commission. Another death could happen at any time to the Rotenberg victims at ABA's skin shock institution.]

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) drills prevent autistic students from learning.

Repetitive Early Intensive Behavior Intervention (EIBI) and Discrete Trial Training (DTT) drills by Applied Behavioral Analysts (ABAs) are contra-indicated for autistics in this study. If it's correct, the repetition of many quick, successive childhood trials at a task, the modus operandi in these two popular behavioral models, would prevent autistics from learning.
