Anonymous’ Testimony – Devereux Glenholme School

2012 – 2016

I was placed her for Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD and an uncategorized bipolar disorder. I was not allowed a phone, I was only allowed a few websites. When I was in trouble for impulsive behaviors I could not control, I was restrained unfairly and bruised or scratched. I was placed in a walled room with no windows and watched. I was not fed and would miss meals for things I could not control. There was also a shaming therapy, where our point system totals were placed on a wall in front of the whole school. You were bullied and laughed at if you didnt earn high enough that week. You had to earn to even email your parents, and each email was copied and pasted to your social worker. You were not allowed to complain about the school.
