I had a student last year who had grand mal seizures every other week. No matter how many times you see it, it doesn't get easier. Once, she got tangled in a desk and was slamming her head into the concrete floor. One of the scariest things I've ever seen.

I've had similar trays in my mouth more times than I care to remember. I had retainers for most of my childhood, and my dentist did this at least a couple of times a year to check progress. Not pleasant. The goo squishes out and gags me, and the edges of the trays dig into my gums.

Last autumn on a local urban exploration trip I went into an office and the clock on the wall was still running. It even had the correct time +- 5 mins.

Will go back soon to see if it is still correct.

I've never heard of sanctioned tours of the place; has always been the latter.

Is this facility open for tours or "enter at own risk" type of thing?

It's ashame what was done to this beautiful place. My dad worked in 70s to closing. Forced to state retirement early. I didn't really know what my dad did there til my teenage years. But I had pride that he was working in a place that helped the disabled. Now I have a disabled son and I know that I don't want to send him to a group home I want him with me forever. But as we life is I will not be here forever.Now all these programs and all this confusing things that us parents has to try to figure out. A lot of choices but all incompetent workers it's not about the love of helping a person less capable. It's very stressful in all ways daily living, planning, relationship, financial, and fire plans. This goes for the aging population. Closing down institutions is not the answer. Corruption in the governments. Too much spending on the wrong things. If I am parent and I'm doing most of inquiring and running around finding out what is out there for my son, why a case manager?? To keep paperwork, to show Medicaid is needed and the state keeps providing. I think some of us parents can do that. That money should go into the thing these young adults need to feel the same to have opportunities, to be able to use that money as they can decide. And that self direction program that's BS that to confuse the parents and make us accountable and stressed out.We already know out role especially if if have kept and want to keep our child at home with us.fix something Government

Nope, these were shot over 10 years ago... but thanks for trying to identify the model!

Based on the base, stem, and bowl of the toilet, I'm pretty sure that this toilet was made by Crane from the '30s to the '60s. It's hard to determine the model of the toilet without seeing the inside of the bowl, but I'm guessing that this toilet is a Santon. It could also be a Saneto or Whirlton. Do you remember the logo stamped on the toilet?

I believe that the urinal is a "Standard" Modesto. The Modesto is a different model than the "Standard" Madstone which looked really similar and seemed more popular. The brand "Standard" is today's American Standard.

It's sad that many developmentally disabled people were sent to places like Willowbrook and Pennhurst. There were many that were incorrectly diagnosed. All they had wrong was a poor attention span that coloured their true iq score and hyperactive or Asperger Syndrome. They had to fight the label to get discharged.

Letchworth reminds me of "American horror story: Asylum" with the brains and being under staffed.
