Here is the introductory paragraphs from the article:

"Whether you’re out in public or in the company of family, talking about a disability and what it means to you or a family member can be tough business.

But with the right approach, talking about a disability can go from stressful to meaningful, says family therapist Diane Smith, who herself has a child with a disability.

In this installment of Scoop Essentials, Smith helps you find the right words and a healthy approach to explaining a disability to family, friends or even perfect strangers."

The article is presented in a question and answer format with Smith, click on the "Web Links" tab above to read it online. In addition to the advice on talking to others, Smith also offers ideas about when and how to talk to the child and siblings about the disability.
