Feelings make the difference

Feelings make the difference

How much their disabilities affect them will vary. Except for the few profoundly disabled children, the disability is not as important as the way children feel about themselves and the way others respond to them. For example, Jamie’s disability is not a big problem to him. He accepts it and works around it. So does his friend.
Carol and her parents, on the other hand, have let a very small disability become a real problem. It affects the way she acts with other people and how she feels about herself.
The way a parent helps a child live with his or her disability, then, is very important.
