DD and I went to a mall yesterday and came across two separate people with disabilities on two separate occasions. Both were in wheelchairs that were being pushed by another and both at least appeared to be non-verbal. They were making loud noises and looking around with seemingly very little neck control.
6-1/2 year old DD asked me after each one "What is wrong with him/her, Mommy?"
I quite honestly had no idea of what to say and stumbled around my words until, thankfully, her mind got onto something else.
How do you answer this question?
