Adults With Special Needs: Why Are We Less Patient With Them?
 
# 16 : Sunday 5-6-2016 @ 11:58
 
 
Someone said :

If we applied the same principles in schools... then most of children with special needs would never make it to the mainstream classes! Are pass exams if the rules were the same for everyone, special needs or not.
Is that not what "special needs" mean?

You have made twisting things into an art form.

All children with special needs are always looked after in terms of their education.

Don't be so fucking stupid!

Is this in general or did you open the thread to talk about him? If so just name it rather then this charade.

That poster was a member of the site for 9 years, had several different accounts - the top two have over 17 thousand posts in themselves (making him at least the 20th top all time poster), the vast majority of people over the years encouraged him to come to meetings (some in which he attended), explore options, get involved when he saw fit, see support workers for some of his worrying behaviours, ensure that there was a lot of room to his opinions and comments and space for consideration of his challenges - hec even last month Thomas upgraded his account for free just so that he’d be in a bit of a safer space with meeting someone.

He wasn’t banned for his disability, he was banned that after nearly 10 years, countless temp account closes, warnings, thread closures, multiple accounts, arguments and countless rule breaking that the line was drawn. He certainly has challenges but that isn't all that he is and does not immunise him from consequences.

That is what I am saying: they are! As long as they are children.
But adults are often left to fend for themselves. (In general. It is not about one individual, he was just the inspiration)

How was he the inspiration for your original post?.
If you explain properly then perhaps your original comments would make more sense to others who read it, and assumed that you were simply making assumptions.

He was an inspiration, but if I said it from the start it would become a thread about him! So the original post is about the wider issue. Not about him.

Still no honest ans.
However, modern society does strive to be inclusive of adults with special needs, via schools, law, new initatives to get people into employment.
Many areas run outreach groups so people can socalise, break down feelings of isolation and support families.

It is wrong to simply make assumptions without gathering facts, or basing it on one person`s experience.

They are. And in the meantime they turn a blind eye to people excluding adults with special needs all around us.

What the fuck are you on about?

I asked how you came to your assumptions.

I turn no blind eye whatsoever.

Fuck off with your patronising bullshit.

People now a day are all about children with special needs and how we all have to bend backwards to accomodate them at schools and everywhere.
But as soon as they are grown up, no longer cute, and especially if they are not attractive, suddenly our patience disappears!

Special needs are for life, and the adults ones need even more support because otherwise they feel very alone. So why do we reject them once they are adults? What is different?

We see ourselves in them..

But then why are we not kinder to them as they age? Do we not like ourselves?

So adults with special needs are not looked after then? Is that really what you're saying?
