    • That smile! Its so genuine and big! Also that laugh! Its infectious! That is definitely his superpower! Thank you for putting this out there. I'm a father of an autistic little boy and this could not have been easy to do. All you want to do is protect them. Hard to do on the internet. Very Brave and commendable! Thank you Mark

  • My older brother is autistic, and we’ve been struggling on how he’s supposed to live his life as an adult. He just turned 20 in April, and my family will definitely check out this charity to help other people like him!

  • I love this. My older Brother who's turning 21 this Monday has autism and he's a lot like how your son is, Even with the routines. XD My brother will always ask what he should do next if there's no routine, sometimes he'll even get a little frustrated so my mom help and talks to him for a bit and then he calms down and Plays with his toys and will hang out with his rabbit.

  • I have autism (literally everyone in my family does) and everyone says I am exactly like Albert Einstein with my thirst to ask questions and gain knowledge. Yes I might be one of the dumbest of my class and I may not have any super power or savant syndrome but im still special in my own way I may not become an Albert Einstein but if im happy then that will do for me.

I applaud and your wife for giving the world an insight into your lives with a special needs child, and for doing this fundraiser for other children, soon-to-be adults, on the spectrum. Thank you! I wish you and your lovely family all the best.

  • My little brother has autism. And I really appreciate this video. It's nice to know that some people actually understand what autism is. Other than the fact it's a disability. But it's also what makes them even more unique. As for the charity I have never heard of the one you are doing but now that I do I will definitely look into it. My family and friends do Autism Speaks.

  • Here’s the thing: *Autism* is not the problem. Rather, if neurotypicals tried to understand *us* instead of deciding that we have something wrong with us because we communicate and see things differently, then we wouldn’t have as much of a problem. If they gave us the support that we actually need to succeed in their society instead of forcing us to be like them, then we would be okay. Some might say “but what about the low functioning people?” Or “what about the non-verbal people?” Well, believe it or not, they also have thoughts and feelings, they just don’t communicate in the same way as neurotypicals. In fact, many of the autistic people you may meet online are considered “low functioning” because they cannot speak. The entire “low functioning” thing comes from the fact that non-verbal people do not respond in the same way as speaking people, so their answers are considered “wrong.” Many Non-verbal & high support needs people also have the same opinion on this. They do not want a cure, and they enjoy being autistic. In conclusion, no “cure” is needed. We are not broken, and you cannot fix what is not broken. Instead of finding prevention methods, focus on supporting us. We are here.

  • My best friend says something along the lines of "People with autism do not need help because they are idiots or born bad, they need help because they are grown up in a neurotypical world while they themselves are not neurotypical. Its like someone moving from one part of the world to another, the culture is suited to the people living there, not to you. "
