  1. I feel for the family’s that constantly feel like they’re not wanted in places like restaurants but really it all comes down to dollars and cents. If the restaurants will either get in boost in business by designating times for people with special needs then more restaurants will do the same. Simple as that.

  2. As a parent of a special needs child, I think this is wrong-headed. We need to people to be more tolerant and comfortable with our disabled achainu and achosainu. They do not need to be walled off from society, especially a Kosher restaurant. No parent wants their child to be cordoned off in time or space. If she feels uncomfortable let her order in.

  3. YOU PEOPLE SOO HEARTLESS ALL SHE WANTS TO DO IS HAVE THE RESTAURANT TURN AWAY PAYING CUSTOMERS AND REGULARLY LOSE BUSINESS SO SHE CAN GO OUT TO EAT .

  4. I just feel that trying to resolve this is just wasted energy. Having a special needs child is a lifetime of challenges and difficulties as I have gotten to experience and deal with sadly every single day. As such not being to eat out in a restaurant with your special needs child may just be one of those luxuries that you may have to forgo given the circumstances that you’re in. Trying to make something out of a nothing (nothing being having to forgo a restaurant meal with your child) is just looking to get attention to your plight which by the way I suffer from too but maybe there is a more productive and helpful way to get attention to your challenge rather then making a biggie about a nothing.

  5. At the end of the day, restaurants are businesses – they are in business to make a living for the owner, who also may have a love of food and wishes to use that life interest to make a living. They are also subject to anti-descriminatory laws and do have accommodate MOST people, including those with disabilities. However, this request by this mother goes too far and is beyond the reasonable accommodation obligations of a restaurateur.
