Main Question or Discussion Point
As though they also have a mental disability?
That's a good question, especially given that one doesn't always know what's going on with a physically challenged person. As an example, my friend's brother suffered a brain injury as the result of a disease. The brain injury has left him with difficulties with some motor skills -- he walks awkwardly, his hands and arms don't always go the direction he'd like them to and he has to be very slow and controlled when moving them to achieve what he wants, and his speech is a bit slow and slurred. There isn't one thing wrong with his cognitive skills, though. He's sharp witted, and snarky, and sarcastic, and pretty much the same bright but self-centred so-and-so he was before the brain injury.As though they also have a mental disability?
