Father Rejects Plea for Locking His Adopted Son in a "Box" for Behavioral Issues

In January 2022, police in Jupiter Florida were called to the home of Tracy and Timothy Ferriter, about a missing runaway child. Detectives discovered an 8 x 8 room, described as a box, equipped with a padlock and doorknob, both of which locked from the outside. Inside they found a camera, a mattress and a bucket with a light switch on the outside wall of the room.

The two parents had confined there adopted eight-year-old son inside this box for hours at a time, over the period of five years.. The child, who is now 13 years old (14 according to some reports), was adopted from Vietnam and had been diagnosed with "Reactive Attachment Disorder" (RAD). After returning from school, the boy was kept in the structure built in the garage, where they brought meals of leftovers to him and provided only a bucket for him to use the bathroom.

Today, the father Timothy Ferriter rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors offering him two years in jail and five years of felony probation. His role of the dice may see him facing up to 35 years behind bars. His wife Tracy, is being tried separately with jury selection in that case set to begin on Friday. Defense attorneys argued that the longest period of confinement was 10 hours which to me, doesn't lessen the severity of the parents actions. Other reports cited the period of isolation in the box to be as long as 18 hours.

Treatment of people with invisible disabilities and mental health challenges have been victimized in this way throughout history. Isolation and abuse of this nature is certainly no way to treat behavioral issues, and anyone who knows anything about mental health knows, this type of treatment, will only make things worse. Below I've linked my piece on "Ridge Home for Mental Defectives" which provides a glimpse at an extreme example of this atrocious form of what some seem to think is appropriate "mental health treatment".

Technology can accelerate learning at school, enhance productivity at work, and create fun ways to play and engage with friends and family. But if you’re someone who has difficulty using traditional technology controls like a keyboard, mouse, or game controller, you might feel like you’re being left behind.

In a win for voters with #disabilities, a federal court has temporarily blocked a #Mississippi law that restricted who could help voters complete mail-in ballots.

In Mississippi, the state's absentee-by-mail voting program is for limited groups of voters — people out of town on Election Day, people 65 or older and people with a temporary or permanent physical disability.

The most recent Structured Negotiation collaboration: accessible credit reports that people with #disabilities can independently access - online and in #braille large print, and audio. Announcement here: https://www.lflegal.com/2023/07/credit-report-press-2023/ #accessibility #a11y #fintech

On Tuesday, July 25, a federal judge temporarily blocked #SB2358, a recently enacted #Mississippi law that limits who can assist #VotersWithDisabilities in returning their completed mail-in ballots.

Some common situations disabled people experience, for some of us it’s a daily occurrence. Please support the disabled community; we need allies all the time, not just once a year! eg only on ____ Awareness Day or Week, for woke points, etc.

This took me about a week, I would’ve added a couple more panels but I’d reached my Spoons limit.

Don't prejudge able-looking people using parking spots for disabled. Especially if they have a disabled sticker. There are many invisible disabilities that cause pain, mobility issues, balance problems, bad lungs and other issues that make walking across a parking lot difficult.
I'm posting this for a family member who is not on Mastodon. She is 32 with an invisible disability. She has #scleraderma -- a degenerative #chronic condition. A lot of pain, on a lot of meds making her immunocompromised and other issues. Her mother also has disabilities. Neither has a wheelchair but they do have mobility issues.
She wrote "Please do not immediately assume due to age and not looking disabled on the outside that they are not truly disabled and faking it, and start yelling, screaming, swearing and degrading them. There are many disabilities which are not visible such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, MS, arthritis, Scleroderma, lung disease, etc. Just because you cannot see the disability of a person does not mean it is not there. I have been treated like this many times, and it hurts a lot and is insulting and embarrassing. The pain of our #disabilities is enough to deal with day to day, we do not need to be treated horribly on top of it. Before acting, please find out what is going on with that person you assume is not #disabled. We are more than willing to explain, but not be treated horrible right away without asking us."

a lovely, longtime #friend is joining #mastodon.

she has #EhlersDanlosSyndrome and is without community. she’s hoping to find people who understand her #medical exhaustion and medical involvement.

would any of you be willing to offer suggestions for instances?

maybe instances where people with physical #disabilities and #autism gather? in a #safe environment, with very tight rules against bullying and extremism?

2/2 Trying to get into #accessibility consulting/testing and already do some. Also getting ready to start college online at Pennsylvania State University World Campus this fall, studying for a B.S. in Information Sciences and Technology. Passionate about #accessibility and #disability rights. Interests include #technology, reading, gaming, and swimming. Run a blog and groups where people with multiple #disabilities can connect and get support.

The U.S. Dept. of Labor announced in a new report that nearly half of workplace accommodations made for people with #disabilities can be implemented at no cost to employers, & of those that do incur a one-time cost, the median expenditure is $300.http://www.dol.gov/newsroom/releases/odep/odep20230504 #axschat

In a webinar on hiring people with #disabilities, speaker Tammy Durden shared a quote on #ToxicPositivity from Stella Young:

"No amount of smiling at a flight of stairs has ever made it turn into a ramp. Smiling at a television screen isn’t going to make closed captions appear for people who are deaf. No amount of standing in the middle of a bookshop and radiating a positive attitude is going to turn all those books into Braille. It’s just not going to happen."

US Dept of #Education opened a #CivilRights investigation in #Illinois for students with #disabilities due to the school’s “practice of referring students to law enforcement for misbehaviors.” The school for students with severe emotional and behavioral disabilities, turned to police to arrest students with stunning frequency. https://www.disabilityscoop.com/2023/03/14/feds-investigating-school-often-students-disabilities-arrested/30288/
