I cannot relay this story well since it was more of feeling than what happened. We have a severly autistic student who needs an aid with her.
The student was in the hall and another student was talking to her. "beth" was assuring the autistic one that she would help autistic student to the class. "beth" kept repeating assurances, her name and what she would do.
patience, love and caring.
(aid was coming up the rear then stopped when scene was in motion and watched)
