Could it be bad that im disgusted by disabled people?

Could it be bad that im disgusted by disabled people?

Disgust: The response of disgust often resembles similar feelings about one's own self, projected towards others. It's a way people can feel themselves to be "better than" others, and discharges insecurities. I won't put a value judgment on your feeling this way, but it will certainly interfere with your relationships. Disabled people may live more fulfilling lives than you do.

How can I help my mentally disabled brother?

Be a brother: People like your brother may be neglected, and may be ridiculed. You can resolve to spend time with him and try to find out what makes him happy. If someone gives him a hard time, talk nicely and say, "He is my brother. He has trouble with things, but he is nice. I know you didn't mean to..." If that doesn't work, report this as you should. Generally, you're the best gift you can give.

How can I be more social as a disabled person?

Get out and have fun: Many communities have adult social centers and shuttles to get to them. Or you could look online for a local group doing something you enjoy. Once you know the members, meet up with them in a public place (carefully!). However you do it, to be social you've got to meet people, and that means getting out of the house. If you need help, find a buddy to go with you, or alternate several for backup.

How can I feed disabled children water & food?

How can I feed disabled children water & food?

Disabled child: If the child is totally unable to eat, as an infant, then a feeding tube is usually placed, through the nose, into the stomach. If the problem turns out to be something that is not going to resolve quickly, then a feeding tube is placed, surgically, directly into the stomach. Occupational therapy should also be a part of care. They can help your child to learn to eat, if developmentally possible.

Do schools have to accommodate for disabled kids?

Do schools have to accommodate for disabled kids?

Yes, to a point: Through state and federal laws, there are mandatory accommodations that need to be done, such as access to school facilities, testing and learning accommodations, and travel to and from school. However the school does have latitude in how to do that. Rather than fit a bus with expensive equipment for instance, they could just send someone to pick a child up. Parents need to be flexible too.
