Lieb at Law Advocates for Justice in Case of Discrimination Against Autistic Child

In a recent development that has resonated with families and advocates across Connecticut, Lieb at Law is representing a mother who has filed a complaint with the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO) charging discrimination against a residential program provider designed to treat the very victim of the discrimination. 

The case involves a serious accusation against Adelbrook Behavioral & Developmental Services, where staff members are alleged to have forcibly cut the hair of a 14-year-old autistic girl, ava, as a disciplinary measure.

Andrew Lieb, the attorney for Ava's family, encapsulates the gravity of the situation: "First and foremost, we want to get Ava the compensation she deserves from the trauma from torture to be able to get the services she needs," highlighting the pursuit of justice and Ava's right to respectful and appropriate care.

This complaint comes amidst other allegations against Adelbrook, suggesting a potentially worrying pattern of behavior by the organization. As the legal process unfolds, Lieb at Law is dedicated to bringing the facts to light and ensuring that Ava receives the justice she deserves.

This case is particularly concerning given the backdrop of previous allegations of abuse within Adelbrook, as reported by the Connecticut Inside Investigator journal. The coverage of this story can be found here, offering a comprehensive look into the unfolding events.
