Then suddenly, with seizures treatable only by drugs, the months of progress were gone. Lee was transfered to a Cleveland Hospital until May of last year when therapy - disrupting seizures worsened until all he did was lie in bed. His home now is Rose Lane Health Care Center in Jackson Township, but his mother Lyla Bennett feels Lee "doesn't fit in." "People might say Lee is retarded because he has brain damage, "she explains, 'but that isn't true. He wasn't born that way. He's not like he was but he's aware of what's going on around him. There is no challenge for him to improve. Dr. Gary A. Gosky of Cleveland, who works at times with Lee at Rose Lane, was Mrs. Bennett's source. "Certainly if you could put together all non-ambulatory patients, those with an ability to do self-help skills would have more potential in contact with others in their own group," he said. But Dr. Gosky said, it is a matter of how fast programs for such care realistically can develop. With the) increasing demand for extended care beds because of people being moved from state institutions into community oriented facilities, children are lumped together in a medium institution like Rose Lane with children of with similar problems. There's still no place to- separate them. William Clark, District 10 manager for Division of Mental Retardation & Developmental Disabilities in Akron, developed deeper into the problem. "The movement toward developing community setups is relatively new. As needs develop, we work on programs,- but our office only has been in operation for five years, " Clark said. ' There is currently no plan set up for children like Lee and the future of such programs depends on an undetermined need. Lyla Bennett now searches for new and better ways to aid her son. Only one man had any positive knowledge of the subject, an official from the Ohio Department of Education who told her there are two treatment facilities for Lee. One is in Cincinnati, the other in Toledo. Meanwhile, Mrs. Bennett is concentrating on plans to organize a parents organi- . zation composed of families with children with Droblems continued to page 2 MAKING PROGRESS.
