Autistic Teen Thrilled After Parents Recreate Blockbuster For Him

People living with autism can sometimes struggle adapting to change. So when Javier's film-loving brother's local blockbuster closed down he found it a difficult thing to take.

While the company formally bust in 2013, after the rise of internet streaming and programs like Netflix and Amazon, a few individual stores still remained. Unfortunately for Javier's brother, their local store closed two days ago.

However their parents had a solution. They quickly created a replica store in their house, to keep his favourite movies and TV shows.

Javier photographed the big unveiling and at the time of writing the tweet has been liked 92 thousand times and retweeted more than 25 thousand times.

People couldn't hold back their emotions:

People are now calling on Blockbuster to pitch in and send the family some DVDs to pump up their collection.

As we mentioned, change can be an extremely difficult process for young people with autism. Young Ruby Passey's world was thrown into chaos when she found out the only food she eats was being discontinued by Tesco's.

The youngster only eats Tesco-brand Potato Alphabet Crispy Letters and would rather starve than have something else.

Her mum Nicola says: "My friend managed to get us a few bags but soon they will be gone. The day I bought her dinner out she was anxious but as soon as she looked at the plate her face lit up so bright and she ate the lot without questions but she still has the fear in her and she's right to because I know once they are gone, they are gone."

The 31-year-old has since launched a petition to help gather enough support to try and get Tesco to change its mind.
