      Exactly. It's really offensive.

    My son has autism and he has some developmental delays. Heads up for you, Leah, people who are challenged are not classified as mentally retarded, so do not put that on your resume. Use the term developmentally disabled. My son has full time staff and his staff does not have a college degree and is only 23. So you can do this work as a habilitation aide with just a few weeks training and a high school diploma.
