Emmett John: The heart attack inducing toddler

This actually illustrates quiet well some of the challenges facing the special needs parent. Autistic kids have sensory needs and will often do anything to fulfill those needs, even at their own risk.
I was taking a random video of Emmett John just trying out the camera and this happened. He has very specific sensory needs and he gets some of them filled by jumping on the couch.
He didn’t get hurt in this video but he does quiet often trying to ground himself.
