I really apreicte this post – the mom writing talks about the things to say and nt say, to do and not do, when somebody you know is raising a child with a disability and yoou want to show your support while making sure you’re not being insensitive.
“As the mom of a four-year old girl who is physically disabled, I get asked a lot of questions about special needs kids. People want to do the right thing, and most people are well-meaning. So over time I’ve put together a kind of mental list of Do’s and Dont’s. The usual caveats apply – I’m just one mom, and everyone has their own feelings and own style.”
