Don. when would you include them? When they no longer have their disability, when they can control what is the impossible to control, when they're to old to have any enegry left to enjoy the same things that you take for granted. I do think the care giver did not act in the best interests of any and the same goes for Davey but why not keep them confined to Bedlam until they learn to control themselves. Most caregivers, school officials, instatations, medical professionals are not schooled or don't care or lack the understanding to deal with special needs kids. It's very common that they go on for years without anyone knowing what's really up, except for the parents & their usually told that whatever it is, it's their fault. No money, no care, no understanding & no tolerance usually are main contributers. Davey's situtation could've been handled better by all but it was not at all any fault of the kids it's enough that they can get a breath of fresh air among those that walk the earth like they own it.
