    neglect and indifference turning them into villains and morally bankrupt individuals .

    barring them from joining the broader community by throwing them in workshops or communal homes and neglect their need to be educate in the ways of independents.

    locked up in institutions and correctional facilities for long stretches of time on trumped up charges unfairly.

    bunch them together with all the villains such as the insane, thieves, vagabond and all those other undesirables.

    I don't know where you live but maybe tomorrow you could check through your local telephone directory for Disability Rights organizations or services for the disabled. Give one or two a call.

    I served as a lay Disability Rights Advocate in central Illinois, USA from 1990 to 2003 and found that most disability counselors and caseworkers absolutely LOVE to help educate anyone who wants to learn. I am sure you can find one or two that would be overjoyed to help with your essay research.

    Oh, my suggestion above is only in case you don't get enough from your replys here. Best of luck on the project! :)

    You could volunteer to work a couple hours at shelter or some place similar.That way you could get a first hand experience. Maybe you will help someone out.
