Special Needs Teens--Be aware

Having arrived home from a 4day cruise aboard the Dream. I wanted to bring to the attention of parents with Special Needs Teens, Disneys policy. I have a 14yr old son with Down Syndrome. As he is 14, he is not allowed into the supervised areas of the Oceaneers Lab. His 12yr old brother is, and even though Zach is the same size as his brother, and mentally he is around 6yrs old, he is not allowed in the Oceaneers Lab. Zach is allowed in he teen club Edge, his brother was also allowed in Edge. Edge is a lightly supervised area, where the teens are allow to come and go as they please. After talking with one of Disney's counselors, her asst. manager, then the Manager. They assigned a counselor to Zachary. Lucky, for me my 12yr old volunteered to keep an eye on his brother while in Edge. It was a good thing he did as Zachary was still able to go downstairs unaware of the Counselor assigned to him. My 12yr old noted he was missing and they found him by the icecream machine downstairs from Edge.
