For children with autism, the world can be a confusing place. So when something comes into an autistic child’s life that can help them make sense of things, they’re going to want to keep it close by.
For 9-year-old James Isaac, that something was his constant companion, Mahe, a 2 1/2-year-old dog. The two have been inseparable until a recent event threatened to tear them apart.
The New Zealand boy needed an MRI scan to diagnose his seizures, so he had to spend time at the hospital. As dogs usually aren’t allowed in, it appeared like James would have to brave the harrowing experience alone…
