Kenth Ebberson, 35, peeks from behind a cabinet in the entryway of his room. Due to violent behavior and the demands of care for his mental handicap, Kenth's parents sent him to live in the institution at the age of 21. By mistake he was originally sent to live in home for individuals with autism, a condition he does not have. There he was greeted with a structured and strict lifestyle that heightened his violent behavior and he reverted to isolation. It was years before he was moved. Today Kenth is a resident at Sølund, a living facility for the mentally handicapped, located in Skanderborg, Denmark. Solund is among many institutions in Denmark that has adopted a philosophy called Gentle Teaching which frames the care around the individual needs of handicapped residents. The philosophy is believed to give the residents more fulfilled lives. Over the course of 8 years, Kenth's previously violent behavior has almost completely disappeared, he has developed close relationships with his caretakers as well as a way of communicating with his hands despite his mental age of around 18 months.
