  • People considering the Judge Rotenberg Center may wish to know that thisschool is currently being investigated by the
    Department of Justice because of the school's documented history, over
    several decades, of abusive and physically destructive treatment of its
    students. The abuses include repeated electrical shocks, often 50 to 80 per day per student, and often including a requirement for particular students to wear their electric shock equipment while taking showers or baths. Additionally, the school makes
    a practice of lending the shock equipment to parents for use when the
    children pay visits home.

    These and other, even more serious, facts about the school are easily documentable via a search on the school's name.
