I need to talk to you about something. At the Judge Rotenburg Educational Center, autistic children as young as eight are being tortured. The device in question is the Graduated Electric Decelerator. This machine was invented by Matthew Israel and was designed to be more painful than a police taser. Young children received up to forty shocks a day. These offenses included things as simple as saying no, stimming (rocking, flapping their hands, etc.), or making more than five noises an hour. The device caused third-degree burns in many children. Luckily, the device was banned by the FDA in 1994. But recently, in a Supreme Court ruling, this horrific device was brought back. Please stop the abuse of autistic children.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Please sign this petition:
Email your local representatives to ban this evil device with this template:
Hello, [MR./MS. CONGRESS REP NAME], my name is [NAME] I need to talk to you about a very important issue. Recently the Supreme Court brought back the graduated electronic Decelerator, which the FDA banned in 1994. I understand why the FDA could not do this, however, you can. The GED is a device invented by Matthew Israel, and is meant to be as painful as a police taser. This machine was originally invented to stop SIB, or Self Injuring Behavior, however the doctors and nurses abused their power and used it up to forty times a day. Please create legislation to stop the abuse of autistic children.
Spread awareness! Interact and boost any post you see addressing this! Create your own with the hashtag “StopTheShock”. Please help me.
Heres a pasted bin with resources.

If you have been impacted by the recent news stories about the Judge Rotenberg Center and their use of electric shock devices on disabled children, please consider looking into wider use of restraint and seclusion. The electric shocks are just one aspect of the abuse that goes on at the JRC, with physical restraint, food deprivation, invasion of privacy, isolation and loss of contact with family commonplace.
These practices are not limited to the JRC; restraint and seclusion are widely used in schools and residential care and are considered the norm in many places. The practice of prone restraint, which has led to the death of autistic children (including Eric Parsa, Max Benson and Corey Foster among many others), was further normalised in Sia’s ableist movie Music earlier this year.
