What is the proper etiquette for talking to someone with a disability?

Consideration for Others

How nice it would be, if you were standing in a long line and noticed a person with a disability joining at the end, to exchange places with them. Even better, ask those 4 or 5 people if they would mind you letting that (disabled) person come up in front of you. Most people are agreeable to this request, and certainly the person in question would be greatly appreciative.
