    I think one of the best qualities every good Santa Claus should possess is the ability to be inclusive with children of all disabilities. If a child can’t sit on his lap, maybe he can kneel down to be face to with him. If a child is deaf, maybe Santa can learn sign language or have the parent translate.

    This Mall Santa let 6 year old, Matthew, who is blind and autistic, touch his face and suit to make Matthew feel more comfortable.

    What do you think about this article? Do you wish acts like this were more common and should be expected of someone like a Santa Claus? Do you worry that you child is missing out because they simply can’t sit on Santa’s lap due to their disability?
