Behind the Scenes – Downtime with my youngest

There are times where the only thing I can do to help Emmett is to simply stop everything and snuggle. Emmett hasn’t been feeling well and on the edge of a meltdown for the last couple of days.

Many kids with Autism don’t like to be touched but Emmett is someone who responds positively to affection. No matter how upset he is, I’ve always been able to call him over and hug or snuggle him. It usually helps him, at least to some extent.

This is from the other day when Emmett was really struggling.
