“Lakewood ….. is a very large community and therefore there is a bigger percentage of children OTD”

The size of Lakewood should have nothing to do with the percentage only the total number

“usually those children are the ones that come from a difficult home or went through something difficult and never got help”

That’s a general assumption about OTD but I don’t think it’s fact, it may be true that those kids are more likely to be at risk but don’t assume they are the only onesor the cause of those at risk. In my opinion that is a dangerous assumption, that ignores the larger issue.

I will repeat what several others have said are there any stats to back up the numbers? are there even numbers?
