ADRs for party including 1 who cannot eat?

We have a family of 9, but one of our children has a permanent feeding tube and cannot eat any food or drink by mouth. When I make my ADRs, should I make them for 8 or 9? I know often it seems going from 8 to 9 in a party makes a big difference on availability, or even just ability to make the reservations online vs calling.

Anyone have experience / advice with a situation like this?

It is by seat so I believe you would have to make the ADRs for 9. (Same theory for an infant or child under 3). I would call if you are doing any buffets since I believe Disney will have to make sure you are not changed for the 9th.
