Many disabled people have lived with their handicaps for a very long time, and thus would usually develop a means of coping in a way where they appear "normal." Sometimes this applies naturally, like a blind man using all of his other senses to the point where he forgets that he is blind. In most cases (and because it's cool), the trope usually applies to someone who [[DisabilitySuperpower uses superpowers to compensate]], like getting around with levitation despite being paralyzed.
