Disney World's Snow White Soothes Emotional Boy with Autism

By

Disney World is extremely stimulating! Between the costumed characters, the rides, the parades, the colors, and the crowds, it can be a lot to handle for anyone, let alone for someone who is neuro-atypical. New Jersey mom Lauren Bergner took her whole family on a vacation to Disney World recently, including her son Brody, who has autism and is non-verbal. Unfortunately, at a certain point, it all became too much for him.  

Luckily, when Brody was overwhelmed, Snow White swooped in and came to the rescue. You don't think of Disney princesses as necessarily being experts in calming children with autism, but she was so patient and happy to spend time with Brody that it ended up being just what he needed.
