Here Ian shares his views on young people being sent to boarding school.
TranscriptUnfortunately, even today professionals are still sending people with Williams Syndrome to boarding school. I personally feel that is the wrong way. It’s the wrong way to treat an individual. That individual has feelings, is a human being, has rights. To be quite honest, I’d be totally against a professional sending someone to boarding school because they know there’s something wrong but they don’t know what is wrong.
