As a society that recognizes children who suffer from varied disability, perhaps if we had a better system established from an early determined diagnosis age with proper treatments & educational needs we wouldn't have these reoccurring issues today. When a school district feels that they "did their job" by placing a child in their special needs program and wipes their hands. That's not enough. Parents live with these children 24/7, we say we need help we reach out to all agencies, departments & doctors- none want to step in and help. It's your child your headache, your heartache. Years ago these children were institutionalized. Today's society declares it inhuman to place your child in an institution (which is called residential living today) you didn't see or hear about children with mental illness. As President Obama stood before America on tv shedding tears for those families in this Connecticut tragedy, he wasn't offering an ounce of help to the families that live with this everyday. He wants to cut more Federal funding for special needs children's education & programs. So who and where do we get help to prevent circumstances like this from escalation? These are children who are trapped &tormented within their own bodies all they really want is help and a windows chance at being like everybody else.
