Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Update on Dean;
He attends a special school and a children's hospital out patient program.

To my surprise they seem to be ignorant in the treatment of the biggest mental health crises for children born after 1999.

I believe the prescription treatment he receives is 180 degrees the wrong way. This is something that must be addressed.
At least Dean is in an enormous group that will be seeking similar strategies in life.

Old school advice of "you'll put your eye out" or "you will go blind" or "It'll rot your brain" is no better than new school advice.
