well then- it seems as if you have answered your own question.
I just want you to state plainly whether your definition precludes anyone from having free will.
made sense to me
The mentally challenged, like children, should be encouraged to make choices, it is good for their mental development and emotional health. The choices should be kept simple and the choices should be chosen by adults, for instance, "do you want to get dressed before getting on the schoolbus?" is a choice that would not cause problems for most of us, but shouldn't be offered to a 2 year old or a mentally handicapped person, because they could cause serious disruption on the schoolbus if they choose "no". but "which do you prefer, your red shirt or your blue shirt"? is an okay choice that should be offered to them. caregivers should be careful not to get so deeply into the habit of making choices for the children and mentally handicapped, tat they shortchange the children and mentally handicapped by not letting them make the choices they can handle..
