    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 :)

    This story deserves to be shared with the world as it teaches us that not everyone is the same, but there is nothing wrong with that and everyone needs great supporting parents like Mark. The fact this has raised over $3m is amazing, keep doing what you do best Mark

  • YungChefDèrosee

    Wow thats powerful stuff. Do you think autism is a development in the brain that happens when two people with higher intelligence than average people create a human who's brain is actually more developed than everyone else. Like the ability to take in more sensory information like your son. It seems like autistic people all have specific traits that actually make them superhuman. Just a thought would love to meet you and discuss I think I may be an undiagnosed autistic lol 😆 😄 😅 😜

  • Devastater

    This video made me cry at your kids kindness and compassion.

    This is a beautiful way to look at this “disability” and I believe mark’s son is an amazing child that will succeed in every way possible.

    Ya' know, I was in a special needs class myself. Granted, I didn't really need it myself and it crippled my ability to learn in the typical way, but I met a lot of really interesting kids and it always kinda seemed like other's didn't understand them. While I myself am not autistic in any way, I do have a similar experience by having sensory overload rather regularly. Luckily, for me, I am able to drown out the noise and focus on particular senses or sensory things like a voice in a crowd. One thing I will say for sure though is that I never really socialized well with other kids when I was in school and those kids who were on the spectrum were an absolute delight to be around, even when I didn't understand their situation fully myself (Well, to the degree I do now.) This is rather intriguing to hear about.

  • EMBL2011

    I loved this video! My son is special needs and also laughs til he can hardly breathe, and often can barely stand when he's laughing so hard. He's got the happiest most contagious laugh, as it looks like your son does as well. I loved seeing his genuine pure joy and happiness.


    I um donated 10,000 dollars 10K

    7:40 when he started to break down, I literally did too. I never cry, but this hit home for me as I too have a son with autism. His words are so wise and magnanimous. I have so much respect for you Mark.

    I have someone I go to high school with who is autistic and he can also tell you the day the week if you give him any random date, he is literally the coolest person I’ve ever talked to. I wish other people thought that too, cause he gets bullied for stuttering or even just asking questions.

    It is polite to use "Person-First" language. My Son (Primary) with Autism (Secondary).

    • Greninjaftw

      Nope! Most people in the autistic community prefer identity first language since person first inherently implies you can seperate autism from a person. That is simply not possible, unless you are telling me you are a alien with technology that allows us to rewire our brains. lol

    Dear Mark, I think you and your son are incredible. I believe that all people should be able to be treated as normal people. As a relative of an autistic person I know exactly what it is like and I understand that you are protective of your son. I hope you know that anyone who tells you or your son that you are less of a person are jealous of you. Keep shining bright!
