BATON ROUGE, La. (Circa) - One grocery store worker is receiving praise for assisting a teen with autism stock shelves, according to CNN.
The teen, Jack Ryan Edwards, went to the store with his father but noticed an employee stocking orange juice on the shelves. Edwards’ father, Sid, told CNN, he noticed his son’s growing interest in the employee’s work.
Grocery store employee, Jordan Taylor, said he noticed Edwards interest too and decided to ask him if he wanted to join him stocking shelves. The teen agreed and the pair spent a half-hour stocking shelves together, according to the CNN report.
Taylor would hand the items to Edwards and then Edwards would put them on the shelves. The teen’s father said he was appreciative of the employee’s actions.
“Somehow this young man reached my son ... he went into Jack Ryan’s world,” Sid said to CNN affiliate WAFB.
Taylor says he was happy just making someone else happy.
