In communities of parents of disabled kids (and sometimes adults), there is a tendency to see disability as inherently problematic, tragic, and disappointing. I have observed that this belief is held by most parents of non-disabled children too, and also by many childless people. It is held by teachers and other educators, childcare staff, medical professionals, and by many groups of people who are frequently making important decisions in the lives of disabled people.
