Winter, from the movie Dolphin Tale, lost her tail and received a prosthetic one. We made one today with an existing stuffed animal.  We used special heart-shaped snaps from Kam Snaps. Alex learned the word prosthetic and continues to learn about special needs. Alex often draws Winter swimming happily in the water.
We have verbally and non verbally reinforced acceptance of people, and animals, of all abilities.
Big brother even got a wonderful new wheelchair today!
