Would they have housed children under the care of the state here. I found a patient with the same name as my great aunt in 1920 census. She would have been ten at the time but census doesn’t give an age for the patient.

This seems like a level of detail that is beyond anything easily found. Perhaps the State Archives library can help because they might know where the old Weston State Hospital records are stored (it could even be at Archives). Other than that you may want to try contacting DHHR and ask them about old records. Good luck with your search.
