The Corner (A Safe Place)

Video Summary

Lucas, a young boy on the spectrum, runs and hides in a favorite corner when his therapist comes. He often seeks refuge in this corner during therapy sessions and/or when confronted with social situations. He also often echoes his therapist questions and statements, rather than responding to them, another early warning sign.

" He had eye contact, he was very smiley and seemed to be social in a way, so it was a little bit tricky, but at the same time he wasn't playing right, he wasn't interested in toys, he was just always in the corner, hiding all the time. "
— Mom of Lucas
