Question: Why are there people who come into the world with conditions such as autism? How can people with low levels of mental development, who cannot read or write and don’t have the ability to study the wisdom of Kabbalah, undergo correction and attain the upper Light, the Creator?
Answer: We have to take care of such people. Society has to take responsibility to do work with them. In no manner or way is it allowed to neglect them because there is a great correction of the soul.
People in these states have no freedom of choice so they certainly cannot correct themselves; but the higher system carries out the correction for him, so these people are also imperative for our world.
Question: Is the correction also for their parents?
Answer: Not just for the parents, but for society as a whole.
