"Children with special needs deserve quality health care service, an effective educational experience and the ability to grow in a nurturing environment that shelters them from neglect. It is so often the case that those with mental illness are not treated with the basic dignity and respect that should be extended to an individual with physical disabilities or physical diseases. State policies should continue to focus on a sincere commitment to improving these basic necessities in making a positive impact in the lives of such precious individuals in our society."
