Anyone who has any experience with children who have autism can attest to the fact that they are loving, insightful, and kind. However, they likely also will admit that at times autistic children may become quickly agitated and have a hard time calming down.
This Tennessee mother, however, knew exactly what might help her angry son during this situation.
Christy Richardson, mother of Bubba, called the county sheriff's office during one such instance of her son's anxiety because she knows that police officers help calm her son down. When she made the call, however, she never guessed just how far the deputy would go to help Bubba relax.
The picture above shows Deputy Corey Loftis of Bradley County Sheriff’s Office down on the ground doing push-ups with Bubba.

Richardson couldn't be more grateful to Deputy Loftis' kindness in responding to this incident.
This simple situation just goes to show how a little compassion can go a long way.
