A really disturbing article

Read the article first...

I'm not entirely sure on the background of this article, but it seems to be from back in 1965, and is about Dr. Lovaas and some of his methods. I found both the article and photos extremely disturbing, but the photos in particular made me sick to my stomach. I know that the whole Lovaas Method has changed since then, but boy... What a depressing, stomach turning read.

What do you think?

That is a horrifying read; almost all of the descriptors of the children tell you what you're supposed to think of them, ''frustrating'' ''senseless'' ''maddening'' ''macabre'' ...I mean, WTF?? These are children, people being discussed like non-entities.
