Recommendations for reading

I hope this is an appropriate forum for this question...

I am currently writing a novel about a couple who have mild mental retardation. I want to portray them accurately and sympathetically.

Can anyone recommend books or internet sites that collect the life stories of those with mental retardation? I'm not looking for anything too clinical, just the stories of those with MR (or from family members), with enough detail to get a feel for ...

Looking for help for my cousin

Me and my cousin are one year apart in age. He's 27 now. When we were growing up, I knew that he had a mental handicap. But it was just a part of life. Since we were so close in age, it was never really thought about. We still played together and acted like regular cousins. I believe he had a severe form as a child, because when he was agitated he would often slam ...
