LOOK: Snow White comforts boy with autism at Disney World
A woman dressed as the Disney princess Snow White has earned admiration for how she handled an interaction with an autistic boy last Sunday, Aug. 25.
Brody Bergner had an “autism meltdown” when he and his mother Lauren were about to take photos with the Disney character at the Epcot theme park in Disney World in Florida, United States.
The mother later took to her Facebook page last Monday, Aug. 26 to share moments of the sweet encounter.
“My son Brody has Autism and is non verbal,” Bergner explained.
I am so emotional with these pictures !! Brody was having a meltdown . It was our turn to take pictures with her and he…
Brody was “crying and was overwhelmed and just having a hard time” during the encounter. Fortunately, the woman dressed as the fictional princess knew how to handle the situation and comforted the child.
According to Bergner, the employee “kissed, hugged and cuddled him” and let Brody rest his head on her lap while he cried.
She even “went above and beyond” for Brody as she walked, danced and sat with him.
“She was a pure angel!” Bergner said. “She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!” JB
