  • Always find info about ASD speaking exclusively about children with autism. Which leads to the attitude that we adults with ASD don't actually exist and that sucks. Why can't we start talking about ASD as something that's not confined by age. At least you acknowledge us.

  • I have autism with the strengths and weaknesses almost reversed (aside from visual, memory and social) I'm VERY analytical, I can read peoples faces, or just look into their eyes and see what's happened to them. I understand myself better now, thank you.

  • What causes autism please…? Is it stress or something…? Vaccines? Anyone know please…?

  • ASD is a life time disorder. I wish us adults weren’t forgotten about so easily

  • I have autism and ive just started talking to people and tbh its quite easy

  • autistic people people are more unfortunate than their own unfortanates of thier disability you can still have autism with someone who is still capable but what are they doing with the autsim anywayits just unfortuate to have autism what was it a 1 in 2500 chance when i was born

  • I just don't like looking people in the eye I feel rude an is a normal thing in some place's. not that I don't I look for the 1st sec or 2 an stop just to show that I am listening.

  • Hello, I am a Belgian mother of 17-year old son with autism. My son is verbal,followed normal education with help from me, his issues : shyness, constipation, concentration problems, problems with maturity, practically no friends because interaction with people is difficult, parasite, yeast on him, acne, kind of dandruff on top of his head. Since the age of 8, we have been trying a lot of natural supplements, hospitals med and i have wasted a lot of money trying to make him became a man and live freely without being intimidated by friends in the neighbor hood also to get him better and more focused for school matters and his general health. Nothing ever seems to pull through not until one day, i decided to share his situation to a very close friend of mine who claims there is an herbal man who cured her 12 years old son called Baba Alika and has also helped a lot of women to cure their children's Autism. quickly i contacted his email: babaalikahealinghome@gmail.com been giving to me by miss Ava, just to give him a test, i spoke to him he asked me to purchase his Autism roots herbs and seed oil which i did, he promised to send it as soon as purchased and thereafter i received it and start to use the Autism herbal med immediately on him for only 7 days instructed by Baba Alika. it was unbelievable after 21 days i was my son totally cured and free from Autism disgrace and embarrassment. There was so much improvement. He seems to get more awareness, gives more interaction at home, interact with friends that never wanted him close. Today i am here to spread the good news of my son health on how Baba Alika saved him from the nightmare and outbreaks of Autism. You can contact him via email: babaalikahealinghome@gmail.com if you are still in my past situation…I guarantee you, your Autism child is going to be healed and feel alive again just as mine right now.

  • The thing they never mention is how these kids adjust to highschool? What about letter grades and graduation? In my Canadian city there is 2 certificates one for teens on a modified program and the other on a adaptive and regular program.

  • I like ur videos…..pls subscribe channel

  • This video is a joke.

  • Holy FUFING SHUST you guy's! I think I'm auhtistic. Now where the hell is my scholarship?!

  • I have autism but it's social not much with learning well kind of

  • I have autism and I’ve always been fine with talking to people

  • P C

    It is annoying to hear these GIRLS talking about children as if they were not people who grow up, never being diagnosed and becoming adults with social problems. Society has to recognize that everyone does not have to be the same and everyone has idiosyncrasies. I am high functioning yet find myself at a loss in social situations and shut down in crowds. I care about other people but not that much. I just think that time should not only spent on children's development but also the successful adults out there that are missing out because they are reclusive and socially inept.

  • I wrote a poem about my version of autism I have high functioning autism

    I have this "problem" with connecting with people and it is by far the most frustrating element in my ASD I am normally very quiet, and when I do speak what I say is boring, and I speak with absolutely no emotion or enthusiasum . It's not that I am really afraid to say whats on my mind… I just have nothing to say. Or I’m not sure what to say. The biggest part of this is when I talk to people (strangers, co-workers, etc..) EVERY conversation is awkward. and I think this is also why i struggle with relationships and friendships . Just not having that natural ability to know what to talk about. So I end up talking about what I’m good at talking about (biology, animals, video games etc) and I think that just puts people off of being my friend or when they do become my friend I feel like I can’t fully connect with them that I’m not on the same wavelength as anyone.Im an alien in my own species which makes me depressed sometimes but I do enjoy being by myself so I guess it isn’t as bad as I think it is.

  • I've never went to a psychologist in my life but I've always been easily
    distracted and I've always found it extremely hard to make new friends,
    hold conversations with people I knew from school or university,
    talking to strangers = almost impossible. It seems like I don't have any
    interest in small talk or conversating with anyone except few close
    friends and family. I've always prefered individual rather than team
    sports, and to work alone if I had to choose between in a group or
    alone. I've always been fascinated with physics and I like maths as well
    but I've never had much interest in people in general. Also I don't
    really understand relationships (even tho I was in a brief one) and
    hints girls give guys. And it seems as if these things have just been
    exaggerated as I grow older. Should I worry about any of this ? I never
    actually cared, I got this far, so it's not debilitating or anything.

  • I actually have autism, so thank you for talking about this! People need to learn more about it, so then more people can understand more about why certain people do different things than most. Again, thank you soooooo much!!

  • With the PECS system how would you be able to deny them? Due to this being used as a correlational device breaking that connection of showing the item and than not having anything occur would be problematic. Would it not?

  • Hi, I was born with Asperger Syndrome and I feel the same way as you. Your such a inspiration to me. I would love to meet you. I am forming a phone APP for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Aspergers to make a friendship thru this app and dating too. 
     
    I live in Orange County, CA. 

    Thanks

  • I’m on the Autism Spectrum and have bettered my coordination my balance used to be horrible and I fell down a lot I’ve spilled drinks a lot I’ve gotten better at it but I still fall occasionally and still spill things quite a lot. I am still very weak physically not only because of my low muscle tone but also because I’ve been diagnosed with Scoliosis.

  • my mum and dad know I had it when I was born because I never stopped crying unless my mum was there even then I still cried with my mum and I did not like to talk to people and I have A.D.D trites dislesa and others

  • ^-^ cool!
    This is p awesome.
    And why do people think autistic kiddoes are so dumb? I got into excel as soon as i could, and I'm doing incredibly well!
    Stay determined, fellow people

  • Thanks for telling me what I should know, I'm almost 16 and I have ASD and I need to know more still

  • will you tell us how to cope with ASD I have it and its so confusing at time to times what I do and people wonder what I do now because I do stuff I don't know I can do or someone would ever think of.

  • The more I learn the more abrasive the typical explanation of ASD becomes. Stipulating I'm probably not the average experience, in my experience all my "failings" are due to social inflexibility and flat out intolerance. To such a degree that the only treatment was to learn the social emotional needs of the higher-functioning people around me. Now I emulate them daily, I never get to set these tools down because even those closest to me, even paid professionals seem unable to dismiss feelings generated by the emotional read they take from me.
    Everything else I do that isn't impacted by social nuance I do exceptionally, I understand via feedback. I even socialize exceptionally but never authentically. It's burdensome, hurtful, lonely and it is making me resentful.
    Why shouldn't the higher functioning accommodate us? I'm not hateful, I don't wish to cure you, I don't find myself intolerant of your differences from me. So why don't you, the more socially able work to reach people not like yourselves? I'll probably never know.

  • I already know I got the thing but its fucking weird how correct this damn

  • Need the app for Android.

  • There's five families in my road and four of them have an Autistic child – what is going on?

  • my mother has wanted to take me to a doctor since i was young since she realized something was off, but since my therapist has suggested the idea my mom has been in denial

  • At the highest end of the autism spectrum we find supporters of capitalism and nationalism.

  • What does spectrum mean?

  • I have mild ASD, but I do everything other people do. I don't think my ASD makes a difference in my life.

  • Nice video but it should be hyper reactivity and hypo reactivity

  • Weve always said he when addressing the who because we came from he. YES HE. WE CAME FROM HE. HE MADE A WO- MAN WITH A WOMB, AND A MAN WITH THE SEED. its quite elementary. And its quite a FACT. You can be a lesbian, but you will never be a MAN. MAN IS FIRST, and SUPERIOR to you. The government has made every effort to feminine the man, because they hate GODS Children, but because of vaccines, gmos, Flouride, Monsanto and chem trails etc. It is no wonder we don't all have asd, autism, depression. Insanity, and every damn thing else. My husband was my hero and I was his DARLING. So I know how it's supposed to be. I HAD IT.

  • Look into bill gates vaccines. Look into government vaccines. I've read enough about it to know that it has killed many babies shortly after administered, and has maimed many others with many health problems that will never go away. I listened to bill gates give a speech for vaccines. In the list of adva stages he gave, about midway of his list, he said vaccines were good for population control. If they can work on the reproductive system they can do other things. Asthma is said to be a side affect of vaccines. The babies died because the vaccines given, were 8 times the normal dosage for their weight. I believe we are all affected in some way or other by vaccines, but in these recent years, these millennial ages, are experiencing the highest percentage of of problems, difficulties. I have a niece, and this has kept her completely out of life. She will never work, never drive, never socialize, she is only focused on a computer game, and drawing the same e images over and over, complains about boredom, but will not or cannot go so far as to play a child's board game. She is totally self focused. Wont say hello, won't say goodbye, won't say ThankYou. Wont get a job, won't take courses, She just won't. She is now 32 years old. Her parents have always accepted this, and catered to her, and it has took them a long time to finally understand there is something wrong, and to admit it. That has been the problem, they are ashamed, and also don't want her to be hurt. So she has never been diagnosed. She said she wants a job, but she flunks the interview because she tells them that she can't deal with people situations. And if the job is not exactly to her liking, then you're outta luck too. she's never dated, and I don't believe she ever will. She won't go to the Dr. To be diagnosed. Her parents don't push it. If they were not there, and one day they won't be, then what will she do. She's like the Rainman. She must have it her same exact routine everyday. Although I understand, I cannot be around her for long, as I feel very uncomfortable with a person devoid of feeling and human interaction. The only time I see emotion from her was the time she agreed to get her GED, and go back to school. She had a meltdown in the parking lot, and had to be taken back home. That is why she dropped out of school in the first place. She was unable to deal with the public, which at times are harsh, but we cannot change the world, although it needs changing badly.

  • I wish my teachers did this, my life would've been much easier.

  • Very informative video. I'm not sure how you managed to squeeze so much information into such a concise video but you hit it out of the ballpark. As a provisionally licensed professional counselor working with my first client on the autism spectrum, I found this video to be WELL worth bookmarking. The drawings and (literally) spelling things out are excellent. Thank you for "paying it forward" by helping me get a better grasp on ASD!
