Ethan’s Asperger’s made him very anxious, so he would always scream and cry. When we came to FBC, instead of being asked to “make him stop”, Pathway got him his own special buddy that worked with him weekly. His buddy really got to know and love him. Not too long after that first Sunday, Ethan looked forward to seeing his buddy, and, because he trusted her, he could settle in class and focus. Which then meant we could settle in class and focus. Sunday with the Church became a much needed time of calm instead of loud, tear-filled wars.
