Sorry for the lack of posts. Apparently the iBooks have a defective logic board problem. Both of our laptops fried themselves on the same night. I think we had a tiny surge that was just enough to break the weak link. So I've been squatting at whatever computer is available.

Echolalia is a term that pops up here and again in the course of working with disabled folks.

Now imagine the scene:
Our annual state inspection is going on. Every aspect of the business is scrutinized.

Our newest resident has severe behavior disturbances. He's a young boy. He's also echolalic.

One of the staff asked him what he wanted.

"I want a blowjob and a cold beer."

In front of the state surveyor.

This line of work is never boring. Frustrating, heartbreaking, and maddening, but never boring.
