    What do you mean by that? I think you either have Down Syndrome or you don't. It's a third copy of the 21st chromosome.

    because he is functional. He has the ability to speak (poorly) and mostly take care of himself though still needs assistance. I have met other people with down syndrome who need constant supervision and can't do much outside of point to a picture to tell their care taker what they need. Maybe I am not defining it correctly.

    I don't agree with TBoone often but he's not really wrong here.

    Also, I am afraid to look back and see what I may have posted in this thread in the past.

    There's obviously nothing funny about a person being born with disabilities. The posters using derogatory terms like mongoloid/etc. should indeed be ashamed of themselves. That said, those are few and far between ITT. The majority of posts I've read have been people finding humor in an otherwise sad situation. When a kid shits himself on the treadmill everyday, for example, you can't help but laugh as the alternative is depression. Kind of a natural human reaction.

    For example....there's nothing funny about Alzheimers, but when my grandmother drove one of Krogers motorized carts onto a major street and was ramming the car in front of her you've got to laugh. Imagine...you've had a long day at work..you get home and your wife is nagging about how you forgot to pick up milk/etc so you get dressed again and run down to the local krogers. You get the milk and are sitting at the light waiting to turn right when BAM...some dumbass has rear-ended you. You look in your mirror and what do you see? A grey haired old lady in a motorized cart and basket full of groceries repeatedly ramming you from behind. After ensuring her safety....that shits funny.

    When a guy in the grade above me jizzed on some poor girls pillow during our schools annual trip to DC...and he was subsequently renamed Spermin Herman....it's funny.

    Tobias and I reminded devine of a lot of the fucked up things he said itt and he spent a lot of time in the bathroom at work frantically trying to find those posts and edit them.

    He didn't really say anything fucked up ITT

    Had my first outburst of the young school year

    Came to pick up an EBD student

    Turns out she was in the process of tearing apart the room 2 hours running now and was on her 3rd change of clothing

    I talk her down, we walk outside for a bit and shoot the shit

    She spots a mud puddle that's at least 30 feet deep and is giving off a putrid smell

    Takes off head first into it, gets mudded up so she won't have to go back inside

    Too bad it's cold outside hun, we calm down again, start to regulate our emotions to head back inside and clean up

    Cleans up and says she's ready for our 1 on 1 time

    Take her back to the ID room after and of course the room is cleaned and everything is set back up

    She goes about tearing everything apart again, clothing is off, milk is raided so there's a huge mixture of chocolate, white, and strawberry milk combined with ketchup and everything else she could get her hands on from the fridge

    Cell phones are broken, tables overturned

    All because she had a sub for the day, deregulated her emotions

    And of course I'm the only one who knows what to do and had read her IEP

    I volunteered with an organization that provides adults with special needs with social and recreational activities a handful of times through the years. One of the participants asked me to be his facebook friend. He creates great content, primarily by just sharing youtube videos about hunting, country music, God, and wrestling captioned with "that is awesome" and his name. Occasionally, he might say "that is so awesome" or "that is so so awesome," but it's never anything else. Well, this week he has been nonstop sharing profile pictures of girls ranging from ~13 to 45. It's been hilarious.
