Erica was admitted to the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) approximately 9 years ago. Erica came to JRC with extremely challenging behaviors, such as banging her head excessively, often requiring the use of a helmet to keep her safe. She would also become severely aggressive requiring the use of numerous physical restraints.
Prior to coming to JRC Erica was heavily medicated and her parents indicated that her progress was below minimal. Erica had many psychiatric hospitalizations and was rejected from numerous instate programs as a result of her aggressive and self injurious behaviors.
Erica's family searched for over a year seeking a program that would accept her and be able to effectively deal with her dangerous behaviors.
Finally, Erica's parents found JRC!
