In the case at hand, (CCA attorney) Roswig said, the toddler attended the Tender Care Learning Centers in Hamden. In 2018, Roswig said, the boy’s family was told without notice that beginning immediately they’d no longer administer the medication if he’d have a crisis. Roswig said the $20,000 was based on damages and emotional distress to the family, who reside in Cheshire. As part of the agreement, Tender Care Learning Centers will retrain its staff so they know how to administer the medication and will educate staff at all its facilities to comply with ADA guidelines.
“The agreement underscores the concept that individuals with disabilities should not be discriminated against. It’s as simple as that,” Roswig said.
