Custodian Lies On Floor To Comfort Upset Fourth-Grader With AutismAlvin Independent School District

Kenlee, a young Texas girl with autism, was having a rough day at school. She hid under a blanket, but this time she wasnt alone.

Hollie Bellew-Shaws daughter was struggling with the noise of the cafeteria at Melba Passmore Elementary School. The nine-year-old lay on the stage, shielding herself from the racket all around her.

In a display of kindness and affection, Kenlees favourite staff member, Mrs Ether, lay down on the floor and held her to make sure she was okay.
