First day at school – the day that is joyful for many children but horrible for some.
It is difficult for children to adjust to a totally different environment from home.
But this thing is more difficult for a child who is suffering from autism.
These children require special care so it becomes the duty of the staff and teachers to help them adjust in the new environment so that they feel easy to come to school as they have to follow this routine for a whole year.
Kadin Templin suffers from autism and had 24 surgeries and is in sixth grade.
He acts like a child but he has gained weight more than other children of his age.
Most of the people who do not know Kadin often asks his mother Christiana Swartz that why he acts as if he were a child although he is larger and bulky in weight.
Christiana always worried about Kadin that how he will adjust to the atmosphere in school and being an autistic child most of the people did not understand him even kids used to bully him.
When he was in middle school his sister who was nine years old used to take care of her and he did not face any problem. But now he was admitted in middle school.
As now his sister was not with him that was the reason why his mother showed concern.
Being an autistic child he was pure at heart and had no idea that everyone is not our friend and people bully us.
But what Kadin used to do was, he hugged and talked to everyone.
But things went totally opposite when he went to school for the first day. The resource officer at school understood Kadin’s condition and became a friend to him.
When Christiana came to pick him the scene melted her and she started crying. Kadin was hugging Ortiz and loving him while Ortiz understood Kadin’s condition.
Later Kadin and Ortiz’s picture was posted on the district’s Facebook page. All the friends and relatives of Christiana started inquiring about the picture.
The picture was taken by a custodian Mama T who was also a friend to Kadin.
Ortiz shared his experience with Christiana and told that he was a law enforcement officer but this embrace and love forced him to be a resource officer at school.
Kadin explained that ho he met his friends and called Ortiz as “New best friend”.
While Christiana was so emotional with all the scenario she added that children like Kadin only need love and attention and now she isn’t worried about her son’s school because he has two good friends with him.
