Let this quote whet your appetite on how children should treat other children who are “different”, in this case it is a disability, but it could be anything:

Her kindness toward this child awed me. I would have expected discomfort and reticence in a child her age. But my daughter, just a kindergartener, has already learned a valuable lesson that some won’t ever learn even in a full lifetime. The body is just a shell containing a person with wants and needs like every other. As human beings, our job is then to show an interest in all people and — if necessary — help them to access the same things in life that we all enjoy. That’s a knowledge that will take her far. It’s an understanding that makes me so very proud to be her mother.”
