      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 :)

      2. Not Yours

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

      3. Hell's Kitchen Kritter and Friends

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

      4. Landon wright

        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

    2. B Morgan

      his son sounds like a nice guy.

    3. Colin Halterman

      This seems like a fine reason not to show him. He seems like a smart and kind kid. Tell him we all support him

    4. Kristen Cullen

      My brother is autistic I can relate

    5. johannes reif

      I love this

    6. Rj Action

      Don't let people judge you. Don't let people take you over. Don't let people bully you. You are special. You are amazing. ♡You are you.♡

    8. Richard Obrien

      Mark could you make a video explaining the science behind the knuckleball or the curve and explain why they move the way they do

    9. pepper will

      He is awesome

    10. Lucas The One

      Cool kid

    11. Deryck Avya Maioli

      I was told for years that it was my "genetic" abnormality /fault that my son has autism and (my other sons have problems), so being a great parent and appreciating them, supporting them and giving them tools for independence, and love, are key for me. I care about the their reception in the world and I know how superficial and abnormal the world is, yet their exposure to the better side of the world overcomes the rest! much success with everything

    12. Patrick Moats

      you are a great father mark

    13. Nichole Prinkey

      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.

    14. Cindy Magee

      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. :)

    15. Evangeline Jones

      Aww that is so sweet

    16. Chris Miller

      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.

    17. Morghan Tuttle

      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.

    18. NightSkyACC /\

      Damelio sisters 🤣🤣🤣

    19. Beers Crew Family

      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.

    20. MuixGohanX

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

      1. MuixGohanX

        @Unimpressed Link thx

      2. Unimpressed Link

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

    21. Charlie McLean

      So much love for this video. Thank you Mark

    22. Hidden Godly poop

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

      1. Unimpressed Link

        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.

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

    27. Red Fox

      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

      1. Red Fox

        @Unimpressed Link Ohhhh

      2. Unimpressed Link

        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.

      1. Mason F

        @inquisitivdave 🖕🏻

      2. Leah C

        Loss? Autism isn’t a loss.

    36. troy newlin

      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.

    37. Fish Tank Review

    48. Jaime Williams

      Thank you for making and sharing this. It takes a lot of guts and courage to be so open when you are a public figure. I am an occupational therapist for students in special education in addition to a parent of a son with autism and another with a behavior disorder. I see both sides of this.

    49. Kid Wesus

    68. Milk and Frogs

    73. Joanna

      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. ❤️

    74. Puppy_OverL0rd

      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)

      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.

    98. Muhammad Helmi

      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.
