    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 :)

      Thank you so much for sharing this. Really looking forward to the stream I hope I can make it! I'm autistic and also work as a teaching assistant in a special needs college with a range of wonderful students. I'm very proud of what we're able to do where we are but I also absolutely think right now there are not nearly enough resources available going into adulthood and what exists is not consistent across the board. So very happy to see a cause like this being supported, let's smash that donation goal!

    Another tip other people may or may not know: those who have autism found it offensive to be called "autistic" instead say, diagnosed with autism

    Your explanation of autism was probably the best I've heard especially with the sound mixing. It gives me a new understanding of what my niece experiences. I'm surprised she functions at all - that much noise all the time would be debilitating.

    Hi, Sooooo... I don't know how to put this but in my opinion your son is very lucky to have a father like you. He is also a very BRAVE and handsome man who doesn't seem to care what others think about him. Dear son of Mark, Congratulations for having such a nice father and keep being yourself 😉. Alexander

    As an Occupational Therapist working with children in the community, it is still unfortunate that, in our current time, children with autism (or any disability) are viewed differently. I've met some amazing families and people with a disability, and they have not allowed it to define who they are. I love how Mark made that children with disabilities (whether cognitive or physical) to be the higher beings than typically developing children. Huge respect and lots of love for people living with a disability.

    This video hit home, especially because I’m seeking an adult autism assessment myself. I was fortunate enough to have very supportive friends who didn’t mind me being different so didn’t realise I was until an adult. I can see a charity like this helping a lot of people that really need it.

  • dawie

    as someone personally with autism (though a kind where some of the regular things don't apply like the one at the playground partially), i can say that it is quite difficult to keep stuff in order in my brain, a new sound far away may be able to draw full attention because it's extremely sudden and pierces through all of the other sounds that (only really in my cases, have kind of/slowly adapted to the sounds) may not have been bothering me anymore. and to describe physical appearance, i look, sound and act like everyone else, no one in my whole kindergarten and school years so far have been able to see that, not teachers nor kids. and as mark had mentioned, some have these "abilities" where it'd seem humanly impossible to even guess that, and my form of that, if you'd want to call it that, is being able to at a impossible level for humans, to be able to react quickly, this mainly goes for catching and dodging sudden things, though catching can vary, i also have the ability to guess the exact or near exact place where something will fall (which is where the catching part comes from). when i first got my diagnosis, i felt personally i got treated slightly differently, and that really was a frustrating thing to deal with, you shouldn't change ways of talking with people just because they're autistic, if they worked well talking with you prior to you knowing, you should just keep going with that. though this is my perspective of it and it may not be the same for everyone else, i feel like it can give a rough estimate of how autistic people have it inside. there's a lot of different kinds of it, so mine isn't really what you should base anything of.

    I have autism, when I was in primary I struggled a lot cause I wasn’t diagnosed, only in secondary school have I been diagnosed my mum and sister have tried there best to learn how to deal with me, the thing I struggle with the most is people treating me like some alien because I am autistic and that’s what I hate the most. I am sensitive to sound and smell, I may get distracted, I may get obsessed with things, but don’t treat me like I’m not human or like I’m a 5 years old. I can love and hate like everyone.

    Not to be too critical but I felt that the around the 6/7 mins when you/he talks about that people with special needs don't fit the traditional definition of success that the tone seemed to suggest they can't do these things. When really people with special needs can be successful in both traditional and the better world one. Just as a neurotypical person can be neither.
