Why is it that adults talk "child-ish" to mentally retarted people?
Asked By Brad.,Last Answer By Georgie At 2009.12,1 Answers

When I was at hospitals and saw mentally retarted people at schools, I noticed on how the adults around them would talk to them like there were 4 years old. Why do they do that? I think they should just talk to them with there regular voices.

I need some places that any of you might know of that have a good standard of care for a 21 year old female that needs constant supervision and not just put in front of a tv or drugged.
Anywhere in the US would be a possibility.
Or if you have any websites I could check out.
I'm trying to do some research for a friend.

How can a mentally retarded child be saved during disaster?
Asked By tany,Last Answer By MousieZ At 2009.12,1 Answers

TRAIN THEM TRAIN THEM TRAIN THEM

you may feel this will scare the child, but if you teach them to SAVE THEMSELVES, GET HELP,
start small, make sure they know about calling 911 in an emergency, teach them slowly, so they can understand that this is for ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY.
Make sure they know that they WILL be taken care of in whatever emergency happens, they wont be left behind.
if they are wheelchair bound, you have to make sure someone close will be on hand to help, this is important.

How can I help a child who is being bullied? Answers from adults and children needed?
Asked By songbird,Last Answer By cissie s At 2011.03,1 Answers

I work in a school as a teaching assistant and one of the pupils I work with is being bullied and is very unhappy. I have spoken to everyone I possibly can to get something done, but what can I do that would help most? I am being supportive, I am reporting incidents, I am trying to make school a better place for this child. If you have any advice about what the best course of action is I'd really like to hear it. If you have been bullied and had help along the way, what helped you most? If you were in this situation what would you most want me to do?

Did adults who walk on their toes also have delayed speech as a child?
Asked By sunopolous,Last Answer By i love my son wyatt At 2011.04,1 Answers

My 2 1/2 year old son has sensory integration (also referred to as autism), walks on his toes, has delayed speech, can't stand to get hands dirty, etc. My husband also walks on his toes or rather with a bounce to his step (I don't exactly know how to describe it, but its not on tip-toe) and had delayed speech as a child. So I'm wondering is there a connection with men who walk on their toes (for lack of a better way to describe it) and a speech delay as a child?
