A second grade class photo is causing quite the stir after a disabled student was sidelined from the portrait.

The little boy in the wheelchair could be seen alone, sitting off to the side as if he wasn’t even part of the class.

The child has spinal muscular atrophy and uses the wheelchair to get around.

His mother was heartbroken after seeing it, saying it looks like the child wasn’t included.

After complaining to the photography company, the picture was retaken with her son seated on the bench with the other students.
