Another autistic kid in the news

9 Jun

I have to ask–did that make you cringe? Are you thinking, “Now what?” Here’s the story: a kid was choking in a school cafeteria. A teacher tried to help but was failing. In rushed in Marken Suaza, a 9 year old diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, to perform the Heimlich maneuver.

Story is here, Boy With Autism Saves Choking Friend.

Somehow that story hit a good spot today for me.

    Glad to have been wrong to have assumed a negative story before reading :-).
