If I look younger here it's because this video is actually 2 years old and it's just taken us this long to feel comfortable releasing it since this is the internet. So please be kind and please consider sharing and donating :)

I myself am autistic, typically when I say a joke it's really messed up, and I can have no filter to let me know when to stop. And in some cases being able to hear, and feel every slight thing can help a lot. Over time personally I've been able to easily focus on what I'm supposed to be doing easily, while also hearing anything that's said in my house. I don't think seeing how people feel through their facial expression is necessarily an autistic thing, but I could be wrong.

Goodness this is so incredibly beautiful. Thanks for reminding us that the most important aspect of parenting a unique child is seeing the is beautiful in them and defending it with all the joy and grace we have. Your son is so fortunate to have your love (almost as fortunate, it seems, as you are to have his). Thanks for having the courage to share, and for doing it so incredibly well.

I have ADHD and ODD, I get mad at small things, and I take many pills throughout the day. My brothers and cousins try and do things it tick me off. Even my dad jokes around and my parents don’t tell my brothers to stop antagonizing me. I have to walk away and keep my hands in fists so I don’t hit anything because I get so mad. I don’t realize when I talk loudly, and I have to be quite all the time because my dog gets stressed with loud noises. Having disabilities and mental issues aren’t easy. I also hear things louder than they are.
Dismythed & JWA
Dismythed & JWA Pred 10 urami
Mark, the flak you have received over this is based on ignorance. ASD is more than a mental "difference". People who are "different" don't need help. People with afflictions do. I am neural-divergent and need significant help. If I could have it taken away, I would do it in a heartbeat. Ignore the extremists who do not even know what it is like to have a disorder impact everything they do. A person claiming ASD who is successful without help has no idea what it is like for those whose ASD interferes with normal functioning. Stay strong. Help your son. Don't let the ignorant cloud your judgment.

As a teen who was once suspected of having Asperger's Syndrome (autistic spectrum) in primary school, I am super happy to see a child with autism (more serious than my case) that has a really cool ability and that this boy lives a completely normal life. Thanks for sharing.

I was told for years that it was my "genetic" abnormality /fault that my son has autism and (my other sons have problems), so being a great parent and appreciating them, supporting them and giving them tools for independence, and love, are key for me. I care about the their reception in the world and I know how superficial and abnormal the world is, yet their exposure to the better side of the world overcomes the rest! much success with everything

Our son is also on the spectrum. He can paint like on one I have ever met. I am begining to think about his future. I want to open a landscaping and design company to help employee him and others like him. He wants to feel like he belongs and can make a difference in our community. I would love to have a mentor who can help me navigate funding and help getting this up and running. Thank you for releasing this. It means the world.

Thank you for being brave enough to share this. I have a sister with special needs and I agree that she is SO successful because she loves so hard and makes the most of so many difficult situations. I hope more people will come to accept that quality of life isn't so easy to put a label on.

Then what is this Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder im dutch btw and is it a bit like autism or not
Unimpressed Link
Unimpressed Link Pred dnevom
It's not really like Autism. ADHD is mostly found in children (although some adults can keep it from childhood). If you have ADHD, you might not be able to focus on things a lot, and you may be very hyperactive and can't stay still for long.

When do you learn the understanding of the word no if you never look it up I've always known the meaning of no but idk here where I learned it so then where did I learn it and how if this makes sense

@Unimpressed Link Ohhhh

Unimpressed Link Pred dnevom
When we are babies, our parents hammer the word "no" into our brains. When we do something we're not supposed to, our parents tell us no. Among other words, no was forced into our brains from a young age. It's a bit like dogs. If your dog does something bad and you scold them for it and punish them, they learn that it's a bad thing to do. Even though babies and dogs can't understand human language, they learn through action.
