(KMOV) – A therapist is now facing child abuse charges after a Wisconsin mother says a hidden camera captured video showing the in-home therapist abusing her 3-year-old autistic son.
The video shows the young therapist elbowing the 3-year-old, hitting him with pillows, and even head-butting him during a session.
The mother, Stephanie Lowe, reportedly set up the camera after she became concerned that her child was not improving from the on-going sessions
“It’s about my son…this could be happening anywhere.”
Investigators say the therapist told them he did not recall assaulting the boy, as he had been studying for a college exam on his computer.
