In both cases I encountered, the website clearly states it:

(In Dutch)
http://widar.be/widar/beleven/den-bayerd-het-casino/ clearly states
"people with an handicap"
https://www.mechelen.be/eetcafe-t-ass-2   It mentions people with a
form of autism (it is worded more nicely in Dutch)

there is nothing hidden in the two cases I wanted to map. But indeed,
I can imagine that not all projects are so open about it.
