You have a beautiful son! My mom worked with ‘mentally disabled adults’. I have worked two weeks there too, doing household. I have seen them too. How I have heard those workers talk to each other about clients is devastating.

I don’t know if I can and if I am allowed to use the term ‘mentally disabled adults’. Or should I use labeled people? Is there a difference?
