35. Behavior and disabilities are different.

This, as far as I am concerned, is not a progressive opinion:

Disabilities that disrupt and disturb others in a restaurant to me is not OK


Blacks disrupt and disturb people in restaurants who would prefer not to see black people.
Women disrupt and disturb some in men's only clubs.
Pregnant women, when I was a child, disrupted and disturbed others in polite society.
People with speech and muscular disabilities disrupt and disturb others in many situations when they are unabe to control the volume of their voices.

None of those are opinions belong in any community that I recognize as progressive.

As to this particular child, there is no indication in any of the reports I have read that the concern was misbehavior - as opposed to a disability. Outback steak house is not a place where children (generally) are unwelcome. Excluding a child with a disability - because of the disability - is a violation of the law (and not an opinion I expected to see on DU).disa

As far as disabilities, and what you can detrermine from a videotape - when you have seen a videotape of one child with child apraxia you have seen exactly one child with apraxia. When you have seen a handful, you have seen a handful. I actually have two friends with CP, and the expression of their CP has similarities - and differences. Both are challenging to understand, but one is better able to control the volume of his vocalizations than the other. I suspect the same is true of child apraxia - there are common characteristics among all children with apraxia - and differences. I am not familiar enough with this particular disability to opine, generally, as to its (presumably) many manifestations. But - as I said - none of the reports I have seen suggest that there was misbehavior involved.
