    Message from REDEMPTION: I have 3 questions, what type or kind of class would a child diagnosed with HFA be in? And second Do kids with HFA recieve diciplines or lunch detentions at school? And third will kids with HFA be able to get through middle school 6th 7th and 8th grade?

  2. mac19971 says:

    Message from REDEMPTION: And also I’ve never heard the term Bipolar disorder in my life. Is this a new type of HFA?

  3. mac19971 says:

    Message from REDEMPTION: I SUPPORT THIS VIDEO BECAUSE I HAVE HFA AS WELL, AND ALSO PDD-NOS. IM HAVING TROUBLE THINKING OF HOW SOMEONE LIKE YOU ME AND OTHERS WITH THIS SPECTRUM WILL BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE. And one more thing how do you share this video with the world, because this is fantastic.

    @matthias66 Doesn’t that mean you could easily become a murderer? This means that you are similar to a robot? No feelings? What exactly is it?

    I was diagnosed with HFA (i have bipolar as well) in middle school (I’m in my early 20′s now), and even though I work in charities everyone thinks I’m mean and rude. I don’t even realize that I’m being that way. Thanks for posting this video. It lets me know there are other people out there who struggle with social skills.

    This video describes my nine yr old to a tee. I love him very much and as his mother I have alot of empathy for him, most people see him as odd or they call him a retard. It hurts me to see that because I know that if they could see him for what he is instead of comparing him to other children his age, they would see that he is awesome. He makes me laugh and surprises me daily with how he sees things. TY for posting.

    I would really like to talk to you sometime. My whole life I have been diagnosed with ADHD, upon entering adulthood ( I am 20), it is OBVIOUS that I have HFA. I have never really got to talk to anyone else with HFA. Its nice to know that there is someone else who sees the world as different as I do. Thank You.

    Im a high-functioning autistic person and I agree with this video cuase that is the same thing 2 me. I wish they will find a cure for autism.

    i’m glad autism isn’t something which should or can be cured, i think from what i’ve seen watching other autism related videos, IGNORANCE is actually the ailment which needs to be cured.
    Too many people label us as rude and insensitive, especially when they don’t understand about autism or see autism as being completely “spasticated” in a lot of peoples eyes and forget there’s a whole range of magnitudes of autism. i find slang difficult to grasp at times as it doesn’t relate to the real word.

    Very interesting and informative

  12. Spoonrider1 says:

    Interesting stuff, but dude, come on, the credits took up half the video. lol.

    Being that I am in electronics I have started to feel like “Normal” people could be characterized as thinking in digital, as with me I would classify my thinking as analog. Instead of a rough rigid fast up and down state of zeros and ones, I would say that my thinking is more smooth flowing gentle ups and downs, able to be any value between two voltages instead of being a rigid full blast on or a dead off.
    I have no idea if people can relate to this, especially if you’re not in electronics.

  14. animeluver1307 says:

    ur right im sorry for making a deal otta this.

  15. purplemutantas says:

    I have to disagree with you on this. I hope there ISN’T a cure. I don’t want people like me to be eliminated. Yea there are all kinds of issues with being Autistic. But, it’s who I am. I am not something to be “cured”.

  16. LikeaJamie says:

    tomhbwc don’t mistake autism with giftedness
    the “problems” you name are also problems where many people with high intellegence stumble upon

  17. LikeaJamie says:

    the music can also be heard in tomb raider 1 (on playstation)
    it’s the title theme lol

  18. PhantomPhury says:

    I just like to watch da video cause of da music.well……da music in the very begginning. the rest is very weird….

  19. animeluver1307 says:

    i really do have it i have high functioning.

  20. Butterflykissesshell says:

    Yes, so true, so hard to explain to people, but we are unique, different but full of quality to bring into this world!

  21. animeluver1307 says:

    i have it too. it sux. i hope theres a cure.

  22. Ultravideoslave says:

    The start of the video really got my attention mainly becuase I do have Aspergers and I am happy to say that one of my special intrest is the Half Life series.

  23. matthias66 says:

    even with my discontented views on having slight autism, I must thank you tomhbwc for putting this video up to inform others of this aggrivating condition. The worst cause of ridicule is the ignorance and arrogance of those who don’t understand people like us. How pathetic that a lot of people with normal cognitive abilities who understand people socially and emotionally often take their knowledge and use it as a banner of arrogance and superiority over those less fortunate.

  24. matthias66 says:

    Point taken, I suppose it is about perception as well. Perhaps the term “curse” is a bit harsh, let’s call it a severely annoying predicament. I call it a curse because it causes you seem eccentric among people, by which they can easily mock you, and it the sense that you have an extremely hard time doing things that involve being social, so it is an aggrivating hinderance

  25. tomhbwc says:

    I used to think of it as a curse too. Sometimes I still do. However, I remind myself of what comedian Christopher Titus said:”If you’re normal, the crowd will accept you, but if you’re deranged, they will make you their leader.”
