Because Last year my son was almost warehoused in such a facility . Instead of providing services for my child with autism, services were written out of my sons I.E.P without my consent and instead of having a behavioral assessment done on my son..the assistant special ed director had my son referred to Robinson Annex facility here in Toledo Ohio This facility uses torturous practices on our children such as shock treatment , , harmful restraints and seclusion rooms on their students and should not be in operation due to the fact they use torture on children..please end this abuse on our children Sign the petition!

To:
Stop the use of shock treatment on our disabled children.
Close down Facilty's that use shock treatment on our disabled children.

Sincerely,

      Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life."

      -- Emma Thompson

      "The more I read and the more I talked to other parents of children with disabilities and normal children, the more I found that feelings and emotions about children are very much the same in all families. The accident of illness or disability serves only to intensify feelings and emotions, not to change them."

      -- Judith Weatherly

      “Acceptance of one's life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices.”

      -- Dr. Paul Tournier

      Child abuse should be important to everyone. My nephew is autistic/blind/non-verbal he needs others to be his voice. My autistic niece was abused at school and it set her back years on her goal of being independent in the future.

      this is so important because my child could have been warehoused into this facility ..the truth is that Toledo Public funds this as a school ..because the reality is no one wants to provide our children with appropriate services and therefore are warehoused into this "facility"

      I have the paper work Lori Beverage and will go to the media if need be and tell everything I know about how my son was treated and show the paperwork because believe me , I have made plenty of copies...how they wanted to label my son with being"emotionally disturbed" without even a clinical diagnoses from lincensed psycologist . Just wanted you to know that I keep all my paperwork to prove the gross negligence of TPS to see that my son was educated and given services..yes Ms .Beverage , it is a facility under the guise as a public school..which I saw your seclusion room..your staff admitted that they use tasering of the students..plus it is all in the paperwork..

      I am autistic and I think this is a grand atrocity that needs to be stopped.
