OUTSIDE READING: ASAN Statement On JRC At Association for Behavior Analysis International Conference

And people wonder why so many autistic folks say NO to ABA therapy…

“The Autistic Self Advocacy Network strongly condemns the Association for Behavior Analysis International for their decision to feature the Judge Rotenberg Center at their 2015 annual conference. The Judge Rotenberg Center, which uses contingent electric shock to modify the behavior of disabled students and has been condemned by the United Nation’s special rapporteur on torture, is listed as both a presenter as well as a Bronze sponsor for the ABAI annual conference from May 22nd–26th.”
