Imagine being abused by someone you trust to care for you, and being unable to tell anyone what had happened.
That’s exactly what happened to Nicky, a young man with autism who is nonverbal. Nicky was abused by his care provider.
The horrific abuse Nicky suffered gave name to the priority legislation Nicky’s Law, which would establish a registry of care providers substantiated of abuse against individuals with I/DD and autism.
But Nicky’s story is sadly just one of many.
With your help, we can work to create a world in which no one else will have to endure what Nicky, and so many others, have.
