There are no dis-abled children in the world. They are only differently abled. It is up to us, the adults in their lives; parents, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents, teachers, pastors, others, to help them discover what their abilities are and nurture children toward a fulfilling and empowered life! We cannot do that by punishing, removing privileges, or keeping them on chart and point systems which keep them in failure mode and set limits which go beyond what our children can attain. We must allow them to experience success in their endeavors – at their own pace and in their own time, and support them empathetically in the process.
