To the editor:
I have shared the experience of pulling a child out of school who had an "autistic-like" behavior disorder, although it wasn't a Lawrence school and the event occurred 18 years ago. While there seems to be still many reasons why school systems and our "society at large" are not prepared to help these people manage in our world, it is disheartening nonetheless that we as a society haven't gained much ground in our sensitivity, understanding or commitment to our citizens who by no choice of their own are behaviorally or mentally or physically disabled. We as a society owe them our best efforts toward helping their success and nothing less. Are you?
