Short description of the event: 
Handprint with Mental Retardation Children: We visited children for our ExchangeAbility week. Some of the children were mentally disabled. Despite being 7 years old, he had the intelligence of a 4 year old child. Some of them were physical disability. We gave the kids white shirts. We then prepare paints. They did not want to touch the paint. It was difficult to persuade. We said that the dyes would come out of their hands when washed. But we did it. We started to paint their hands with the colors they wanted. We printed T-shirt with painted hands. Your children enjoyed it. They wanted us to spend more time with them. We gave as a gift t-shirts which painted together for remembering us. In the end participants were asked about their feelings and experiences.
