(WHAS11) – A Wisconsin mother says a hidden camera captured video showing an in-home therapist abusing her three-year-old autistic son.

Therapist Stephen Jacobs is seen elbowing Caden Lowe in the head, hitting him with pillows and head-butting him during a session.

His mother says she suspected something was up but nothing like she saw.

“If I hadn’t put a video camera downstairs, we would’ve never known,” she said.

Jacobs is now facing felony charges of abusing a child during a therapy session.
