A school for developmentally disabled students in Massachusetts has won a controversial appeal to use electric shock therapy on self-harming pupils.
In March of last year the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of electric shock devices as treatment for individuals engaging in self-injuring or aggressive behaviors.
The Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Canton, Massachusetts, which is the only place in the country to use electric shock therapy for this purpose, petitioned the ban with the support of parents and guardians of patients who receive the treatment.
