Girl With Autism Is Having A Bad Day At School When Mom Sees Custodian Getting Down On Floor

After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

This just goes to show that a small dose of compassion can go a long way.

Kenlee was having a rough morning at Passmore Elementary in Alvin, Texas.

The fourth grader was in no mood to be stuck inside the cafeteria; it was too noisy, there was too much going on, and she just couldn’t deal with the chaos in the lunchroom.

So Kenlee grabbed her pink blanket and curled up on the floor all by herself, hoping it would all just go away. Kenlee has autism, and too much noise can create sensory overload and an overwhelming sense of anxiety.

Kenlee’s mom, Hollie, works as a special education paraprofessional at her daughter’s school.

She posted an image on Facebook that went viral — because as Kenlee lay on the floor hoping for some peace and quiet, someone else lay down beside her.

Hollie is so glad this “angel on campus” is now getting the recognition she deserves.
