In my opinion it depends on the disability and the environment they are raised in. If they are raised in an environment where they are predominantly with people of their own ability level, then probably less so than if they are in a "mainstream" environment. It also depends on the reception they have gotten from others around them. Here in Jacksonville we have the "Girl Without a Face" (not mentally challenged, just physically),Discovery CHannel did a special on her among other things and if you read the stories the news have done on her it is very interesting. Juliana is the name of the girl and she goes to a regular school now and one of the stories they did related her introduction to kindergarden and how those children went from pointing fingers to being her friends. I am willing
