Pam Zich (May 5, 2016), investigative blogging journalist with the new group, ABA Leaks, did a Freedom Of Information Act request with the FDA (FOIA - pronounced at the FDA, "FOYA").
Zich sought Crookes' reply to the FDA violation letter that JRC was using shock devices that were never approved by the FDA, the GED-3A and -4.
The GED-1 had previously been FDA approved, but JRC claimed it was not electrically charged enough to stop these ABA clients' "pinpointed problem behaviors."
Crookes (2012, p. 2, par. 3) admitted to the FDA that she was applying electrodes to the upper quadrants of the buttocks.
Why does she feel she needs to administer such an invasion of shock victims' private areas? ABA Leaks suspects JRC's other electrode covered areas all over the body were previously burned or blistered by her facilities' "noxious, electrical ABA aversion therapy" applications. Crookes (2012, p. 2, par. 3) reported she also shocks "the forearm, upper arm, upper thigh, calf, torso, palms of the hands, (and) soles of the feet."

FDA requests more public input into JRC's FDA-unapproved electric current levels. July 9, 2015. Canton, Massachusetts. Director Crookes tells two advocates she still shocks disabled clients with FDA-uncleared devices."
