Elisha Birckbichler, 6, plays Super Mario on his Nintendo 3DS, April 19, 2012, beneath a table at Umi's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Columbus, Miss. Elisha has Asperger syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder, which makes it difficult to handle extremely noisy or overstimulating atmospheres. The restaurant was crowded and Elisha became stressed, retreating to his own world beneath the table. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
