    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 :)

    Whenever I come out of my room I get a "oh look who came out of their cave", so it's safe to say that he has a better social life than me

    If you didn't already know how many of your childhood fans were kids on the Spectrum and their parents, I hope you understand it now. Thank you for this. You just made my kiddo feel so awesome because your family looks just like ours. 💗

    My niece is autistic. She is beautiful and though she has trouble with social interactions she can sing like no one else. Her voice has such resonance and vibrato you would never know she was nine. You never know what your son will accomplish especially with such loving parents. Autistic people have done some great things.

    I grew up having a learning disability and I just found out I have autism today I was literally talking to one of my friends and I was listening to music on my TV then on my phone and talking to them outside my phone they asked me how I did and I don’t know how to do it and I did not explain it but I am really hard times reading but I have great times with math. So Forssman judges them try to figure them out first there’s no room for a trip when we have no control of it

    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.

    This is by far your best video ever! A poem for your son, When you run the ground shakes The sky opens and mere mortals part Part the way to victory Where your Mom and Dad will meet you In the winner’s circle And lay a blanket of flowers around your neck. Respectfully, Our Family

    Now, I would love to be his friend, not because he is mqrk Rober's son, but because he is in my age group and would personally lighten my day, I could learn so much from him and we could talk about our differences.

    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.

    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.
