I am so sorry that this is happening to this disabled man. No one should be treated this way. EVER! Hoping that his situation changes for his safety and well being. Heartbreaking!!!

Any person that works in a facility that takes care of people with disabilities should go through testing to see if they have the patience to work with special need adults. These
(workers) should be beat sevearly. How hard it would be to trust others to care for you.
God Bless you Marquis, be strong.

I agree! Too many still are not trained. I been to two hospitals that don't have well trained staff.

andrea miller's commentary (last part 9) When Director Martin of DODD has been contacted about the problems with the leadership of the centers, he has stated he has confidence in his leadership. He ignores the problem. Maybe that is why he had had to increase his settlement funds by 600% for the next fiscal year--- pay people off to keep quiet or just go away! The public needs to be aware of what happens in these places.

God bless you and your son and may you have justice!!hy is this important to you? (Optional)

andrea miller's commentary (part 5) First, I will say at no time did any "professional", including the so-called PhD psychologist ever consider his behaviors may have been related to "grieving"-- this was a young man of about 23 years old that had spent his entire life at home with loving parents and was suddenly admitted to this center...and a week after he was there he was held against his will in an activity center for a week to be "hidden" from state surveyors.. and now he was in this...

Crazy or what?? The Superintendent, Program Director, psychologist and Medical physican were all present in this meeting that signed to have a helmet placed on his head. Again-- at no time did they attempt to "understand" his behaviors and how he might be grieving his family and his home--- it was all about the staff again--- how to protect them....and the brilliant assistant Superintendent (now S

andrea miller's commentary (part 4)They felt he was in the good hands of "professionals" and had no clue what they were doing to this young man. It was also hearsay that the Superintendent had told the workers that kept him in the room to do whatever it took to control his behavior.

Only the lowest sort of life form would allow the abuse of a child OR a person with a disability. Get him out of there now! And prosecute those who have abused him.

Because this boy has been through so much. There is no place for individuals like this in Franklin county, they need to come up with another plan of action. He can't do anything or go anyway because he suffers from physical, mental, and social abuse. The man is not a man, but a child who needs someone to desperately help him.
