'Profoundly retarded' will benefit from DAC project

Email News Alerts

There's not a lot for "profoundly retarded" people to do these days, but that's going to change by the end of summer, at least in Detroit Lakes.


There are 19 such clients at the Becker County Developmental Achievement Center in Detroit Lakes.

With IQs of 19 or less, they generally can't walk, talk, feed themselves or go to the bathroom without help.

They make up more than a fourth of the 72 clients who come to the DAC daily to learn work and living skills.
