The Arc Connecticut’s Statement on Abuse Investigation

According to media reports, the worker responsible for the abuse was arrested and criminally charged.

“The Arc Connecticut is deeply disturbed by the recent release of a videotape which appears to depict a staff member at a privately-operated group home physically abusing residents. This is obviously heinous and unacceptable behavior and the perpetrators should be prosecuted to the highest extent of the law. The Arc CT is confident that Options Unlimited, state regulators and authorities are investigating and will, and have, responded appropriately. For 60 years The Arc Connecticut has advocated for the basic civil and human rights for Individuals with IDD and their families and we continue to do so.”
