Loyal Service Dog Calms His Human During Asperger’s ‘Meltdown’

In an attempt to inform people what it’s like to live with Asperger’s syndrome, Danielle Jacobs uploaded this video of herself experiencing an Asperger’s-related meltdown. Jacobs has trained her dog, Samson, to recognize depressive episodes and comfort her until she calms down. Jacobs explains, “It appears the response is late but it’s actually supposed to be as I’m coming out of the meltdown as I tend to have a panic attack after.”
