    beautiful boy.. he reminds me of my son so much.. xx

  2. agfillion says:

    No not typical he sees things in a certain order and that is why he is lining things up, I can almost guarantee if you were to take one of those toys out of the order he put it in he would have a meltdown because it messes up the whole order of things for him. His views are different. My son does the same thing and if I take a toy out of that order he will get very upset. This is not a bad disorder they are very intelligent

    I don’t know a lot about autism but he seems like typical toddler to me

    I have autism(high funictioning) and I can tell you that I do most of these all the time(not knowingly) i thought the way I thought was normal till I got into highschool. One of the things Ive noticed that they dont mention is that I always constanly have thoughts in my head 24/7 its impossible for me to be blank minded, I have atleast 10 thoughts going at once all the time.

    I am applying for an ABA masters this year so I am devouring these videos.
    Keep posting.

    the walking on the tip toes and spinning the wheels and the lining up of toys, great captures of the signs of autism. thanks for sharing this.

  8. mealie1613 says:

    That was an amazing video, very good presentation of autism

  9. PreciousWords88 says:

    hes so cute when he;s playing with the twig :)

  10. Hawaiisun4me4fun says:

    Stacking, lining up, spinning wheels of a car, looking at his fingers, avoiding eye contact….it’s not the single event. It’s the collection. There was NO play..only rituals.

  11. Hawaiisun4me4fun says:

    Perfect! As a Sp Ed Teacher who works in Early Intervention…this was right on! Thanks so much for sharing daily life with the world.

    Give autistic children lots of raw cilantro, its a natural chelator.

  14. brian50g says:

    The music is perfect :)

  15. b12nd0n says:

    @masmddds Yeah I know. Not exactly the most fitting music in the world.

  16. masmddds says:

    What the hell is this? An educational video on something serious like autism or some artsy-fartsy light-hearted documentary on some kid’s daily behaviors? Unfuckingbelievable how some people seem can’t seem to tell when it’s important to put music as the only audio, and when it’s appropriate to provide actual sound footage so that people can hear what’s going on.

  17. JSkelentonKey says:

    @Asinner6969 its just the fact that he’s obssesive over it. see how he does it like its areligous routine, lol. that all autistic kids do it. its just a way to recognize it overall. a main symptom. u shouldnt mark ur kid as mental just cuz of that. he/she gotta have the whole package.

  18. JSkelentonKey says:

    ok and 1:20, kids just do that.and “wow” at 1:32 , lol! autistic kids just seem overally neat to me, lol. thats better than him thorwing and breaking shit! but its still bad cuz i dont want my child to literally have a one tracked mind. how old is he, can he speak??

  19. hljmom says:

    I love Kevin!…He reminds me of my son at that young age. mine is now nine and has been diagnosed with Aspergers .You know best what is going on with your child. I am shocked my some of these comments …it is obvious that some people are not aware of the traits of autism…they shouldn’t judge or make negative comments. Keep up the beautiful work He is amazing and so are you!

  20. Weisenheimer78 says:

    I am not an expert. You are correct, stackign and ordering ARE a part of normal learning, just as people with autism are intelligent. I think the difference lies in the overabundance of neural connections in the ordering/stackign part of the brain (the frontal lobe). It’s almost like being too aware of the details, sometimes to the exclusion of the big picture. If he stacked blocks and played pretend with his friends there’s a balance. If he’s obsessed about the minutiae of one activity….

  21. Asinner6969 says:

    I’m not being sarcastic, but can someone please explain to me how this child is autistic? He likes to stack and order objects based on size. Isn’t that part of normal learning?

  22. TwistedSpell says:

    Pardon my ignorance Miss Vinigar.
    He is still a darling child.

  23. TwistedSpell says:

    I’m not seeing anything that screams autism – is he an Asperger Syndrome child? He looks very bright and yes, needs a playmate.
    I know lots of children that line up toys. I think he’s brilliant! What an adorable delight of a child!
