    Gosh - I wish stuff like this happened more often. But it made me really happy to read that it *can* happen.

    It's not just autism - can't tell you how many people talk really slowly and *really* loud at Boo (if they talk to him at all). For some reason, wheelchairs mean the person is hard of hearing?????

    I've had similarly good and similarly bad experiences to those documented in the story. The "security guard" at Wholesome Foods in Irvine, CA told me I had to take Kiddo away because she was upsetting the customers. Outside. Off away from the entry doors.

    On the other hand, when Kiddo had a tantrum at Alphabet Moon Toys in Davis, the cashier behind the counter helped when I was dragging her out, and other adults on the sidewalk either smiled sympathetically or asked if I needed a hand while I waited for her to wind down outside. If you're going to have an elementary school age kiddo with autism, Davis CA isn't a bad place to live.
