Brittany Murphy is not a model or a fashion designer, but she does have an extraordinary gift for making people feel like they are.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Murphy shared how she has taken on her role as a teacher for children with special needs in highgate school in London.
The 29-year-old actress said she wanted to be an educator because she is passionate about teaching, which is why she became involved with the highgate School in September.
She said that when she first came on board in September, she was given a new assignment: to teach a four-month-old boy named Dylan.
She said she did her best to keep the child calm, but he started to cry.
Murphy said that after the boy cried, he had to be quiet, and the other children around him were trying to calm him down.
However, the situation became more stressful when Dylan was diagnosed with a severe learning disability called autism.
As a result, Murphy said, the other kids were becoming increasingly aggressive and even started throwing objects at her.
“Dylan is so smart.
He’s not like the other three, who are just playing and playing and just playing.
He can talk and he can understand what is happening,” Murphy said.”
It was almost as if he’s an expert, but I was just trying to keep him calm and make sure he didn’t start screaming at me or anything like that.”
I also taught him about how to say hello, but you’re supposed to say ‘Hello, Mr.’
You’re supposed the first thing you say to people.
But when Dylan started crying, I realised he couldn’t understand what I was saying.
“When Murphy said she began to cry, she said Dylan got very upset and the others started yelling at him.”
So I tried to calm down him, I was like, ‘It’s fine, he’s crying,’ ” Murphy said of the experience.”
He just started getting really upset.
And so I told him, ‘You have to be a little quieter and just kind of keep quiet and let him cry.
You can just do it for a little bit.’
“Murphy also revealed that Dylan’s mother, Tricia, has taken the lead in teaching Dylan.”
The thing is, when I was working with Dylan, my mother was the first person who was on the phone with me to try and explain what he was doing, how to talk, how not to talk to people, what the normal, normal, routine of social interaction was like.
“She was the one who really helped me understand it and to be able to teach him.”
Murphy, who plays a teacher in the upcoming HBO series ‘Bachelorette,’ said that it was important for her to learn from her experience.
“I think it’s important for us as actors to know that if we’re going to be doing this, we’re not just going to do it to be funny or to be in a good mood,” Murphy told the Daily Mirror.
“We have to do the work of teaching, too.”
We have such a low threshold for what we can do and it’s such a challenge, because if we do it poorly, we will not have it for him.
And then if we try to teach someone who has a disability, we risk alienating them, which can have a negative impact on their ability to do well in life.
