He shared “I have lived with intellectual and developmental disabilities for nearly 50 years now. Because of there not being any state services back in the 70s both my parents had to work therefore we had to rely on friends, family and neighbors and sometimes my schoolmates to sit with me after school until my parents got home from work.”
