February 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #116: Donīt Over-Emphasize the Disability

Tip of the Week

If your child has a handicap or disability, you should ensure that you treat them as normally as you would treat anyone else. This doesnīt mean ignoring the disability altogether. Rather, it means that you donīt over-treat them in any way. Recognising the disability is as important as recognising anything that hinders peoplesī abilities. But, over-emphasising the disability or the problems caused by it can lead the child to have emotional traumas over their particular handicap - feeling that they are "different" to everyone else.
