  • 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 :)

    • bye 👋

    • i know mine is not as bad as you really sweet son but i have dyslexia and get made fun of for it and i have depression and anxiety and i love your son that he gose through that and it makes my day to see that he can make it through that and if he can go through that than i can to. Yall macke my dad

    • Most wholesome video ever. Even Mark himself started to get sad and studder.

    • I actually didn’t even notice. I thought it was just a different haircut 💇🏻‍♂️

    • I just need to say I'm autistic and one year our house burnt down and I went crazy with the noise of the fire trucks my mom and dad and more so don't judge

  • you are a great father mark

  • 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 so much for posting about your family and son! Such a great video. My oldest is high functioning and he is such a blessing. Sharing the video. :)

  • Aww that is so sweet

  • I know you likely probably won’t see this comment but as a parent of a child on the profound end of the spectrum myself I just wanted to give heartfelt thanks for making this video and sharing it. It is the best I’ve seen since Loving Lampposts.

  • 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.

  • Damelio sisters 🤣🤣🤣

  • 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.

  • I think i have either ADHS (German word, dont know the english one) or i am Autistic

    • It would be ADHD in English, same thing but "syndrome" is changed to "disorder"

  • So much love for this video. Thank you Mark

  • Then what is this Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder im dutch btw and is it a bit like autism or not

    • 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.

  • protecc that smile

  • I want a letter

  • Anyone who could be mean to your son deserves the death sentence

  • Hello

  • 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.

  • The beauty of the human vessel isn't as valuable as a pure human soul.

  • I cried at the end

  • it's okay we still love and support you

  • my mom showed me a video because my brother has autism and the kid typed in a tablet it’s like a tiger trapped in a cage

  • special needs arnt a disability it's just a different ability

  • This is the most heartwarming thing I have seen in a long time! Keep up the great work!

  • Dear mark thank you for posting this video you were very brave to and you son inspires me you are one of my favorite USdosrs and I respected you more than ever I love watching your vids love Jenna

  • Sorry for your loss because I know how hard this is. However, you are caring and willing to fight for the rest of his life.

    • @inquisitivdave 🖕🏻

    • Loss? Autism isn’t a loss.

  • My sister is special needs, and I rather have people like your son and my sister in this world because they make the world better unlike the people that are mean and ruin others lives by being greedy.

  • I’m not crying you are

  • I have a younger brother who is autistic....So he can't really talk...

  • This is so heart warming. Never judge someone before you get to know them or hear their story. You never know what other people are going through. ❤️

  • What people think about autistic people: grow up to be a scientist Actual: An antisocial kid who screams at people (my little bro at least)

  • Mark rober is an amazing father

  • My mom is a handy cap teacher

  • my freind Eathan is autistic and he is great at country stufff I dont know how to explain, but he is just amazing at geography. also i hope your son will have a great life!

  • 2:07 i had to stop watching the video since that day brought back a trauma, specifically that year

  • My mom works with this thing called down syndrome association I no it's not autism but sill it's cool

  • This moved me deeply. Thank you so much for taking the risk and sharing your video!

  • Thanks Mark for such awareness of Autism. With me being diagnosed with autism at 12; this hits hard as I'd never thought a person I've been following for many years would experience Autism like millions of other people. you really have explained this disability so perfect i was shocked. thank you for spreading awareness. always, Your loyal Subscriber.

  • 6:34 FREMONT HIGH SCHOOL WHAATTTT I SWAM THERE FRESHMAN YR

  • This video explains it perfectly. Well done!

  • autism is not a disability it is a different ability.

  • When the candles go out he looks like he don't have any special needs

  • "ive made it clear that, i dont care about them" *proceeds to eliminate his nieces and nephews*

  • 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.
