I took both of my boys, ages 5 & 3, to have pictures made for TaeKwonDo.
My oldest son has been diagnosed w/ Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD. We are on a waiting list to see a specialist because his therapists and counselor believe that he may have Asperger's.
As soon as we walked into the place for pics my oldest starts into full on meltdown mode. I tried to calm him down but nothing was working. He was crying and waving his hands like crazy.
The man who runs the academy came over and asked me what was going on with him. I seriously was so overwhelmed. I just said 'he's having a meltdown...not sure why.'
He bent down and calmly asked him what was wrong. My son stopped crying and told him that he was afraid that the flashes would hurt his eyes.
He then walked to the people taking the pictures and asked them if they could take his pictures without firing the strobes. They turned them off for him and his pics turned out awesome.
I am so grateful for his kindness.
