Honestly, I think they're just ignorant...not in a negative way, either. They just honestly don't understand. So often, with special needs, people think it's all visible and obvious - so if a kid looks normal, then all must be well. They don't take into account immunity concerns, low tone, delays, etc. It's hard for people who haven't been so surrounded by it to understand. We are living it - therapies, extra appointments, special tests, it's all part of our life so it's easy to forget (for me, at least) that to someone on the outside who isn't doing all of that Danny seems like any other kid.
