    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 :)

    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.

    This is beautiful! I have 3 children on the spectrum and two of them have several other health issues. It's a day by day living. I love my special children. They are smart, funny and loving in their own way. Biggest thing I have noticed is, they are real and genuine.

      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

      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.

    My brother is autistic . He can’t speak and express his emotions very well but he knows what he’s doing . Whenever he wants to eat , he will bring spoon to any of my family members (including me) . The fact that some autistics people can actually type stuff and express their feelings is incredible . I hope that one day my brother will able to do so.
