A young man’s story is going viral after a video of him letting a young customer with autism help stock shelves at a supermarket was shared on Facebook.
Jordan Taylor, a 20-year-old who works at Rouses Market in Baton Rouge, La., was stocking the store’s refrigerators when he noticed Jack Ryan, a 17-year-old with autism, watching him work.
Sid Edwards, Ryan’s father, said that his son was so engrossed in Taylor’s work that he initially thought he wanted orange juice. However, even after grabbing a bottle of juice, Ryan was still watching Taylor work. That’s when Taylor asked if the teen wanted to help.
