Encounter Between Autistic Boy And McDonald's Employees Going Viral

A McDonald's worker was on duty when a teen brought in her autistic brother. The teen was so touched by the great service that she had to share her story on social media.

“We were greeted by a lovely young lad whose name was Aled, who said hello to my brother and explained he had met him the previous evening when one of Alex’s carers took him in for tea,” wrote 16-year-old Katie on Facebook. “The carer told us how Aled had encouraged Alex to order his own food and find the right money to hand over without rushing him.”

Aled went above and beyond the call of duty. He remembered that Alex liked to pour his Fruit Shoot into a cup, and had one ready. During the meal, he noticed Alex got the same toy he had gotten in his Happy Meal the night before, so he came over and exchanged it for a new one.

Alex was so happy when they were leaving that he asked if they could come back again. Katie knows that it was Aled's extra effort to be friendly and offer good service that made Alex feel so comfortable.

“We usually opt for the drive through option, but Aled made it fun and easy for us both to go in and for Alex to enjoy his meal without any funny looks or comments,” wrote Katie, praising the employee.

Aled got wind of the post and responded, "Thank you for this but there was no need, honestly. I’m just glad he enjoyed his meal and of course his toys.”
