Franklin is trying to imitate! 

Children with autism often have significant difficulty with imitation. This has always been the case for Franklin who has never imitated actions, sounds, or facial expressions. 

Imitation is a fundamental skill and these imitation deficits directly affect Franklin’s social and communication competence, as well as impacts his learning capacity.
