    @sonriseLatrell He seems like a fantastic kid. I grew up with a woman who was autistic. People need to understand autism isn’t something that needs to be like a swear word or like “oh he has autism avoid avoid” They can do as much as us sometimes. I try to get the message dont judge a book by its cove in my vlog. I truly to bet he is a great kid.

    autism isn’t like down syndrome, you can’t hear or see a difference. you can however see how they act (they act a lot younger than their real age)

    @shalenaiscool @shalenaiscool I have Aspergers which is a high functioning form of autism & no one would know unless I told them my daughter has moderate 2 severe autism but because she is opposite loves hugs loves being touched & tickled sometimes ppl ask me if I’m sure it was the correct diagnoses uh yeah she still covers her ears when she doesn’t wanna hear something or its 2 loud
    Please don’t judge someone until u have gotten 2 know them no matter what race disability or religion etc

    My 5 year old is being tested for autism this year and he has very little communication skills. He would watch this video all day, every day if I let him. This song, performed by Latrell is my favorite song in the world. Thank you Latrell! I should stop typing so my son can see his “firefly” song now.

    He is wonderful! I have 2 boys with Autism myself, and am EXTREMELY proud of who they are! I wouldn’t change it for the world! My one son told me he likes having Autism-that made my soul sing! <3

    I’m not lying, he is an AMAZING singer. He has autism, but he can still enunciate the song lyrics near perfectly! You rock Latrell and keep singing!

    @sonriseLatrell its 1 in 91 and 1 in 60 boys now, oh geez. last i check it was 1 in 110 and 1 in 70. i just graduated college and hope to work with students who have autism. he did an amazing job with this, and im glad that he has at least found some way of expressing himself. ever think of maybe getting him an instrument? he might be able to learn those things by ear since he’s got musical talent and memorization skills already :)
