"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Curious

I have a question that I am am wondering if some of my readers might be able to help with.

I am wondering how many (if any) of your kids have been turned away from your local mental health service (most likely known as Child and Adolescent Services) due to the fact that they have "special needs" - or, more accurately, because they are mentally challenged.

I know many of these Services work with children and adolescents on the autistic spectrum, but has anyone been turned away because their child is mentally challenged?

I am really hoping I might get some responses here, whether they be yes or no. Thanks.
