A Story of Friendship Made Stronger by Autism

About Mason Kalnins

Mason Kalnins is on the autism spectrum. He is higher functioning than the average child on the spectrum, but he still has struggles with social situations and communication. According to his mother, this has caused him to develop some quirky habits.

His doctors had once said that he would never walk nor talk, so having quirky habits was quite acceptable. But, as is often the case, he did not make friends at school easily, so when he ate lunch it was quite alone.
