Should I treat my handicapped child in any special way?

Encourage Them!

If your child is disabled, encourage them in anything they want to undertake. It's better to avoid saying that they can't do something just because of their disability. Instead, find ways that they can. For example, if they are in a wheelchair and they want to play sport, encourage them to consider wheelchair basketball. There are plenty of stories of disabled people who have succeeded in doing "the impossible" simply because no one ever told them that they couldn't do it.
