Living with Autism

April being Autism Awareness Month, I was surfing the Internet and found these videos about Will, who is living with autism. Take a few minutes to view them and learn about how those who live with autism look at the world.

Many families are not as lucky as Will's. The waiting lists for help are long and treatment is very expensive. Please be aware that autism effects approximately 1 in 150 people. I love one of those people and chances are that you do too.


  1. Ummmmm, I'm able to comment!

    Thanks for the video shares my friend.

    Happy weekend.

    [wow, that rhymes. LOL]

  2. I'm here -it works.

    Great instruction for all of us. Amazing story.

  3. I can comment, too. Does the commenter have to be on blogger?

  4. Mary...I just got your email, and I came here once again...I can comment here...I'm not sure what you mean about them being 'turned off'.

  5. Those were interesting videos. I'm impressed that Will's classmates accept him so well. It's not always so easy for anyone who is "different".

  6. The Autism Statistics really surprised me, especially the 1 in 150 children who have Autism! I watched both videos and it truly is amazing the drastic change when a child gets the help he needs. You, as Brandon's grandma, have helped him along so much, you can be proud of the fact that you've made a difference in his life. xoxo
