Will the developmentally disabled go to heaven?

I don't know if I've ever heard any position by any religion on what is supposed to happen to the developmentally disabled or people who are otherwise intellectually compromised in death. Within the perameters of religion do people without the ability to fully understand and/or assert a belief go to hell or purgatory, etc.? I understand that this may be a question for a religious forum or for those who believe in a religion, but I figured I'd pose it here too.

    IMHO upon death, the electrical system turns off, the heart stops pumping, blood stops flowing, organs begin to deteriorate and go to dust or ash. Flesh, bone, and blood return to their basic elements and nothing remains but memories. No heaven or hell, no afterlife, no reincarnation. Our atoms change form and become the stuff of stars. One day our planet and sun will end and our elements become part of other elements in the universe. There is no soul so there is no place to which to go. 

    So, who you are remains as others remember you.

    The Mormons feel that the developmentally disabled are special people maybe even Angels. if I can believe what I have been told.  My son was born with cerebral palsey and he is 33.  If there was such a thing as angels he is one. but he can be a little devil at times when the mood strikes him. He isn't able to walk talk sit up or care for himself. He does has a certain attraction to well endowed blondes.  lol
