    The site looked interesting. You might want to look for more politically correct words than "Mentally Retarded" though. It made me twinge each time I read them. Just a thought!

    Nick: Thank you for viewing my site and giving me your feedback. I agree the wording is not politically correct, but it is the medical definition for the disability. This is one reason why I use it. The other reasons are as a group, schools have gone so far to hide this disability, that most refuse to use this term much anymore, have become blind to the appalling all around failure rate for the Mentally Retarded population, and continue to refuse to implement programs like mine, that have been proven over and over again to work. I thank you for your thoughts. Walter
