    My brother is also autistic. Not only is it hard for him, it’s also just as hard or maybe harder for me. But whatever happens at the end of the day, he is great to be around and makes me. 😊

    • nat

      It is not harder for you, trust me. You are not the one living in a world that makes you exhausted because it isn’t made for you, so stop making him feel like a burden because he didn’t ask to be born that way.

    This really touched me! You presented this information in great respectful and positive way! I am autistic myself and have 2 autistic sons. I realised that I am autistic just one and a half years ago at age 43, and got my diagnosis a couple of weeks ago. Your son looks like a wonderful boy! Thank you so much for this! 👍 🙂

    Most people concentrate on peoples appearnce and how they act or what they wear but there are only a few that concentrate on the brain. Your son is defiantly very special.

    Mark I have autism and I see at lot of things different from everyone else I can speak normally but it does get hard to explain things I forget which type of autism I have and I always have special needs for my school work but I love to do stuff with computers mostly programing

    • nat

      If you have autism it’s autism. It doesn’t really have different types because everyone on the spectrum is different.

    • ghost1825

      I have a lot of other things too that makes it worse like adhd which makes me distracted very easily and I have always been very sedative to every that I can feel like when I get a haircut I always feel the cut hair on my neck which is very uncomfortable

    • ghost1825

    Thanks for making this video with your son and explaining autism a little more in depth. Your son is adorable and seems really sweet and you seem like a great father as well. He looks very happy. I know it's hard to, especially when it's about people you care about, but try to disregard any negative or rude comments. It's usually from immature kids or people with inferiority complexes.
