I see your point, but from my experience, all sorts of people finish up in a refugee camp, and with some sort of selection process you could get the right parents who are ready to learn new things. We found parents have a very strong motivation to help their children.
Right. It seems to me that this needs to be turned over to someone who works in a center where they train dogs. I see here in the UK there is an organisation called Dogs AID which trains dogs for people with disabilities. I agree 18-24 months sounds a very long training! Interesting idea to use technology in the training process - what were you thinking of exactly?
