Here's a newspaper's anecdotal evidence of ABA-induced trauma: Terri Du Bous, the next emancipated Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) survivor, speaks.

My friends, peers, colleagues, and allies,

She is free of Canton, Massachusetts' Applied Behavior Analy$i$ (ABA) damaging skin shock falsely speaking and misleading profiteers and now she’s talking!

Du Bois could join the ranks of JRC survivor-litigants, along with Andre McCollins (settled for an undisclosed amount) ...

Anyhow, here's the news. Investigative reporter Heather Adams (July 22, 2016) said in MassLive.com:
Many disability advocates, former students, parents and former staff members have worked to stop the use of the electric shock devices for years — in some cases, even decades.... The FDA confirmed JRC is the only institution in the U.S. that still uses aversive electric therapy. The organization proposed a ban on these devices in April, and the comment period for that proposal ends Monday, July 25.... Terri Du Bois was 17 when she tried to commit suicide… The hospital spoke to her parents and recommended that she move from upstate New York to Massachusetts to attend JRC.... The hospital spoke to her parents and recommended that she move from upstate New York to Massachusetts to attend JRC.... After Du Bois' hospital stay, her parents told her about JRC, but she said they didn't give her a choice about going. The school, she said, was presented like college, which sounded like a good option anyway.... 'But when I got there,' she said, 'it was like military.'... (JRC’s) shock device known as a Graduated Electronic Decelerator, or GED, is the most notorious tool JRC uses, but aversive therapies covers a wide range of methods, including restraint boards.... The shock device known as a Graduated Electronic Decelerator, or GED, is the most notorious tool JRC uses, but aversive therapies covers a wide range of methods, including restraint boards…. In 2005, early on in her time at JRC, Du Bois was sitting in class and needed to re-situate her pants. Her natural reaction was to stand up and fix them.
Adams (2016) can tell the rest of Du Bois’ story as she uncovers it in her Massachusetts online newspaper.

Dear FBI bozos and fellow autistic Hoya (Georgetown) leader, Lydia Brown: Let's shape Autism $peak$ (A$$) with Skittles.

[Still-drafting, editorial note: July 14, 2016, 2:00 PM. This freaking bitter-sweet, action-packed multimedia, multisensory post is such a blast to blog, that I ain't nowhere near done yet by any means possible. I need a long break. We'll see you again with updates, same Looney Tunes bat channel, same Looney Tunes bat time.]

Dear FBI: The squirrels have eaten all your nuts and a proud, uni-person, schizophrenic clown is poking you with a dormant cattle prod to awaken all of you from all of your Alice in Wonderland, catnip, cat naps.

Double agent, Chaos vs. Control, Cat Stevens' top-secret spy outfit.

But I was shocked and profoundly disturbed by the revelation that at Autism Speaks' Walk Now for Autism in Washington DC, the city where I live, they chose to host and feature the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) as one of their exhibitors at a resource fair. Lydia Brown, November 13, 2013

Lydia Brown are adorably-tough, autistic, and proud, like you wouldn't believe!

Handsome, fast-developing, young professional, most-diplomatically-mutinous, skull and bones, rudderless, lost-at-sea, do-something-more-now, please, dudes (What are you waiting for?), pleasantly-dream-worthy, rod-full, Pirate Ship Captain, beautiful heart, nicely-true-Christian-novelist, autism-peer-advocate-extraordinaire, Jacob Persico, a founder of the breakaway-from-loudmouth, Captain-Pat-ABA-Leaks, Good-Ship-Lollypop, Santa-Maria, the one and only freshly investigative alternative, TPI Leaks, aka Troubled Person's Industry Leaks, of Persico and Company. In addition to none of all that hyper-serious blubbering about Persico as reported by the Schizo Payaso, as it turns out, indisputably the world's leading nutcase authority of the ethics of behavior science pissed her off one too many times, so Jakey-boy, and weird, weird Jay Rosenthal, spoke in super-sweet emails to JRC Director Crookes, so they went without me, the Dynamic Duo, Rosenthal and Persico, and I stayed home, still Tweeting about Rotenberg's #torture and about #CloseTheJRC. We've got much to sweet to the torture mistress Persico (2016) carefully concerned mostly all about saving lives at JRC in his Crookes' meetup report, whether or not his kissing her ass could harm his own up and coming, highly respected to Pat, almost always gentle lad, unless Pat shows up in Jersey to Rhode Island chat, agitates his sensitivities to such an extreme, that Jacob reports to and Pat that Pat had made him throw a rubber ball straight across his apartment during one more of our two dozen rotten egg bucking-heads-into-a-long-lasting-friendship during one of their hour-long telephone disputes. Jacob and Jay ear-witnessed the witches claim that what damaged her Andre Mcollins reddened skin was not her FDA unapproved shock devices, rather according to Crooked, his bruises only came from how she had him bound immobile, face down, to a four point restraint board while her obedient sheep, rather wolves, shocked him 31 times in one day for reputedly refusing to remove his coat when JRC, as it came out in civil trial. Glenda, my dear, as we also buck heads into friends, though way down the line, you emailed me the fact that you read my shit about you, so shoot ABA Leaks and TPI Leaks another email, please. You don't expect the world to believe that how you bruised Andre was acceptable simply because, as you incredulously seem to claim, that when you tore up his arm, that what YOU and Israel did to him was okay after all, because it was only your bondage equipment and not your frequently-alleged shock burns that did it? Furthermore, in your next email with Jacob, please explain to your international audience how your BCBA in charge of science at the FDA panel meeting, given all those burn complaints, could possibly claim that your super-charged jolts do not cause burns? That's what he said! And he's on record with the federal government stating such denial. You're due to explain this now.

Anyhow, enough about those two multiple-personality-disordered actually-autistic Bozos....

Here, now, for your very own eyes, ears, and bitter-sweet taste buds, my internet friends and my meta-professional, clown-ethicist colleagues, below in this post, you may have the most recent finding of our very own Bill's or Ted's, Juan's, Pat's, and Pam's most excellelently adventurous investigative team, ABA Leaks.

This is Applied-Behavior-Analysis' very-own, top-secret-information-exposing, international-group-of-roundabouts with respect to the pathetic, bogusly-scientific, pseudo-professional, and cult-wide ABA support of the JRC-fill-up-the-beds-multimmion-dollar-prison-system of extremely painful electric skin jolts and more ABA "concentration camps" to follow!

See, namely, the United Nations Report of the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment Méndez, 2013, p. 85.

ABA Leaks pinpoints the JRC's really, really weird behavior, which obviously includes the unconscionably inappropriate behavioral repertoire (1) of JRC founder Dr. Hurt, Matthew Israel, BF Skinner trainee, (2) of whining and complaining in actual email to Pat, "You-misrepresent us, Safety Pat,"  JRC Director Mrs. Glenda, The Good Witch, Crooked, and (3) of all of that dynamic duo's minions on (3a) the JRC Board of Directors as well as (3b-z) their blindly-obedient underling thugs, who, thanks to our work at ABA Leaks as we operate completely in cahoots with all the other highly-skilled, Close-the-JRC, informal-network-of-advocates, are all going to turn into nice, bubblicious, whistleblowing, we-all-spill-the-beans-sooner-or-later-because-that-was-Crooked's-last-staff-punishment-control-straw snitches, and (4) of the selfless, oh-for-the-love-of-Pete, cannot-fathom-why-torture-is-not-in-fact-nicer-than-medicine, informed-consent-to-shock-the-brains-out-of-them-because-they-hurt-themselves, no-common-sense-parental-cruel-and-unusual-punishment-signatories.

FBI: Take notice please because you do some extremely valuable work and we mean business, so please don your red clown noses and seek our input as you re-open the Justice Department's ABA/JRC files, please. Pretty please with sugar on the bottom so it falls off these sickenly sweet words to you, most excellent highly-professional, and obviously ridiculous, too, dudes and dudettes! We at ABA Leaks will be calling you on the shoe phone, so please, reopen your ABA/JRC case when we do, OK?

Now hear this, Ladies and Gentle-Bops! Unplug the cotton from out of the doubled auditory organs and the tripled finger-insertion-holes which infinitely-flanking every last roundabout side of your circularly rock-hard beautifully-black bowling ball skulls!

It is time to give Autism $peakS (A$$) a well-deserved Skittle, because the big fat A$$ has officially heard the actually autistic blogosphere uproarious screaming, speaking, and social unrest in response to fellow Georgetown alums Lydia Brown @AutisticHoya! I am indeed their more seasoned peer advocate, their extremely well-respected, twice-famous advisor, if they should require me to teach them as the super-happy licensed performance artist, about this race-is-in-fact-a-genetic-myth-world that we actually share, so calm and content these years, in boisterous bliss, as I know life can be, with more time to know it than them, obviously, and we both taste fame, so this is good spirit and allowed, obviously, then I remain, fondly to you'all, always yours, the one and only, and there were more before us, the #AutiSchizoHoyaPayaso, el Changoleon Oaxaqueño paradox wey, siempre un pocito mentirisimo, mestiroso y la verded en una oracion real de paradox, mis amigos! No mames, Lydia!


In one, unique, single, solitary bop upon the unitary collective noggin of Auti$m$ $peak (A$$), Lydia Brown has indeed earned themself a very-effective, monkey-wrenches clout(s)!

Lydia Browns

For, in fact, Auti$m $peak$, as of the publication date of this post, has officially and specifically excluded the Judge Rotenberg Center from its hefty-bag Massachusetts Applied Behavior Analy$i$ resource directory file. So the baby brat A$$ has, in all probability, listened to you speaking and acted in kind. Fabulous job, you did charging out of the gates in DC when you uncovered the previous highly-irregular big-A$$ endorsement of JRC tortures. You made them improve, and they're due for some praise, as we all need a pat on the shoulder, from time to time, for good work, as so do they now! (See A$$ (2016), ABA, Mass. B-P list vacant of JRC.)

Make it so, gang!

Case remains open until we #CloseTheJRC.

Here's how to judge an ally to us actual autistics versus one of our typically clueless parents or of our Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) bully thugs.

First and foremost, and by a landslide, topping my half dozen hats, I am an ethicist. Judging is the name of the game in ethics. There is never a sin in good judgement. The devil lies in the details of misjudgement.

Anyhow, here is how to judge an ally to us actual autistics as opposed to one of our typical clueless bullies. Trust me on this one, folks.

Here is the self-evident premise: Only actual autistics know actual autism. 

All else below follows deductively (automatically-logically) from that premise and from the written and spoken words of leading actual autistics who have spoken clearly and loudly from the mountaintops of the globe, spanning from nation to nation, big and small alike.

*****

1a) If the person says, "Person with autism" and not "autistic,"
1b) Then that person is entirely clueless to the voices of actually autistic advocates speaking.

2a) If the person says,  "Autism awareness" and not "autism acceptance,"
2b) Then this person is also completely clueless about what the advocates say actually autistic children really need and want.

3a) If the person supports, gives an audience to, or hires a non-truly-Positive-Behavior-Support-positive-only-and-completely-informed-PBS-expert, who is instead, therefore, in fact, exclusively and undeniably, when push comes to shove in honest, well-informed Behavioral Ethics debate, a coercive-actually-punishment-addicted-Applied-Behavior-Analyst (ABA),

3b) Then this ABA backer or actual ABA thug is much worse than completely clueless. This is a commonplace brainwashed enemy to autistics who needs loving treatment to break her or him away from ABA completely. This is an empathy-disabled creep, a senseless, unsympathetic, inhumane, selfish, control freak who refuses to listen to actually autistic adult peer advocates who are crying out to their plugged ears on behalf of poor little overstimulated autistic abusees. Such as these are parents of autistics, they exist in non-stop, ABA-manipulated, wildly-exaggerated, panic mode over their perceived horrible family outcomes such as imagined financial ruin, divorce, never-employed and thoroughly-ostracized and institutionalized children as they grow up. The Behavior Analyst is always in completely-selfish-autism-exploitation-for-profit mode. All supporters and actual powerful, domineering, ABA cult-members are torturing abusers, in fact, because we emerge from their so-called "effective treatments, which they actually view as submission training to remove the so-called 'autistic nature: wild, out-of-control, disobedient, deviant dogs or horses' in order to tame the beasts and mold them like behavioral putty into tame, normal, ordinary, common, boring, neurotypical, and ludicrous persons." We arrive, in the end, as worried, bad memory, nightmarish, Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), ABA-victims, despite ABA propaganda/dissemination false denials to the contrary as it goes so far as to manipulate the public to support politicians who give them insurance payments to their expensive, wasteful, countless hours of what it calls "ABA Therapy," the oxymoron of the turning millenniums, which means a contradiction of terms.

4a) If the person supports Auti$m $peaks in any way whatsoever in light it up blue or with their trademark autism puzzle pieces, they DO NOT LISTEN to actual autistics speaking who have thoroughly lambasted Auti$m $peaks for its encouragement of extremely painful ABA electric skin shock, which all non-PBS ABA completely supports or allows in complicity, every last one of them down to the very jots and tittles of all their written words. A$ and ABA are thoroughly mutually in cahoots with one another;

4b) Then that person is a torturer of autistics and others as much as ABA is replete completely with skin shock pain Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) Canton, Massachusetts, actually ?corrupt? Bristol County, Massachusetts Probate Courtroom judge-rubber-stamped-and-approved, ABA-skin-shock-pain-tortures. Tell them to shock and imprison themselves in Canton!

*****

Such is the truth as I know it to be. I am, indeed, one of their PTSD victims, in fact, as they have ostracized me, and maligned me, and defamed me, without ever telling me directly and precisely what I ever said that was such a big sin to warrant their maltreatment of my behavior! If any of them ever deny they have provoked PTSD in me, then that person is not telling the truth, obviously, as common sense and the first premise above dictates.

Only we autistics know autism, nobody else, ally Steve Silberman, author of New York Times best-seller, Neurotribes, included, of course, obviously, unless he says he is autistic himself.
