      If I look younger here it's because this video is actually 2 years old and it's just taken us this long to feel comfortable releasing it since this is the internet. So please be kind and please consider sharing and donating :)

      1. 42mavsbball

        Heart warming Mrs mark rober, your son is a very happy kid and I hope it stays that way. Also you should make the envelopes merch and donate the money to color the spectrum

      5. Hell's Kitchen Kritter and Friends

        I actually didn’t even notice. I thought it was just a different haircut 💇🏻‍♂️

    2. Zaxi0

      I wish I could smile as much as him.

    3. Thorium

      Whenever I come out of my room I get a "oh look who came out of their cave", so it's safe to say that he has a better social life than me

    4. Youtuber Rozonexkt

      This was so sweet

    5. Don _Forca

    6. Wayne FPV

    7. Robin Kat

      My heart is warmed by this!

    8. Mary Ellen Miller

      If you didn't already know how many of your childhood fans were kids on the Spectrum and their parents, I hope you understand it now. Thank you for this. You just made my kiddo feel so awesome because your family looks just like ours. 💗

    9. Doot

      I donated like 30 bucks

    10. Nao Wright

      My niece is autistic. She is beautiful and though she has trouble with social interactions she can sing like no one else. Her voice has such resonance and vibrato you would never know she was nine. You never know what your son will accomplish especially with such loving parents. Autistic people have done some great things.

    11. Sarah scholz

      Thank you mark.I have a friend how has autism. I also play football with him

    12. Kay

      I totally get your fear of posting this, I get bullied so much for this, especially online. 🥺

    13. Tad Tolbert

      This makes me happy!

    14. emma Jesse

      I grew up having a learning disability and I just found out I have autism today I was literally talking to one of my friends and I was listening to music on my TV then on my phone and talking to them outside my phone they asked me how I did and I don’t know how to do it and I did not explain it but I am really hard times reading but I have great times with math. So Forssman judges them try to figure them out first there’s no room for a trip when we have no control of it

    15. Miss Holly Travels

      AW! He is so cute! My cousin has autism and it's amazing seeing the growth I love this video

    16. OMNI KING

      I myself am autistic, typically when I say a joke it's really messed up, and I can have no filter to let me know when to stop. And in some cases being able to hear, and feel every slight thing can help a lot. Over time personally I've been able to easily focus on what I'm supposed to be doing easily, while also hearing anything that's said in my house. I don't think seeing how people feel through their facial expression is necessarily an autistic thing, but I could be wrong.

    17. Jenny Sebring

      i gust moved into a new state and one of my new friends is autistic and is really nice but Suicidal): i try my best to remind him he is important and i hope it is working ):

    18. Le Rue Martin

      Amen! we are very lucky to have them.

    19. Le Rue Martin

      What an amazing boy.

    20. Casey Holmes

      Goodness this is so incredibly beautiful. Thanks for reminding us that the most important aspect of parenting a unique child is seeing the is beautiful in them and defending it with all the joy and grace we have. Your son is so fortunate to have your love (almost as fortunate, it seems, as you are to have his). Thanks for having the courage to share, and for doing it so incredibly well.

    21. OptimumFrost

      Wdym nothing is wrong? he’s normal like other kids

    22. chase o carter

      I am autistic and I have an ability to pay attention to stuff without even looking at it

    23. Bounty

      I have 2 brothers with down syndrome they are so cute

    24. tsup2

      ngl when he started off with "That was my son" I found it very funny to think of it as ""that" WAS my son."

    25. miltrae

      What a beautiful video! We have loved your science related videos for years; how special to get a glimpse of your family - your son’s huge smile is contagious, for sure. Thank you for putting this out there and for your work to support the autistic community. 💙

    30. Rose is the future

      This is by far your best video ever! A poem for your son, When you run the ground shakes The sky opens and mere mortals part Part the way to victory Where your Mom and Dad will meet you In the winner’s circle And lay a blanket of flowers around your neck. Respectfully, Our Family

    31. Henry C2

    38. Amanda Farmer

    39. Barbara Wilson

      Your son seem amazing you should not be scared to show him to the world

    40. Ice

      Did we raise over 3 million dollars HOLY

    41. Endo Studios

      Now, I would love to be his friend, not because he is mqrk Rober's son, but because he is in my age group and would personally lighten my day, I could learn so much from him and we could talk about our differences.

    42. Brent Patrick

      Amazing. Thank you so much for making this known.

    43. Daine Westera

      I love his big smile

    44. poke packs

      I like him he's cool and also if I had a son like him I would 100% do the same thing you would you are a great father with a great kid :)

    45. Sebastian Budz

      Amazing video

    46. Madison Lovesvids18

      I have ADHD and ODD, I get mad at small things, and I take many pills throughout the day. My brothers and cousins try and do things it tick me off. Even my dad jokes around and my parents don’t tell my brothers to stop antagonizing me. I have to walk away and keep my hands in fists so I don’t hit anything because I get so mad. I don’t realize when I talk loudly, and I have to be quite all the time because my dog gets stressed with loud noises. Having disabilities and mental issues aren’t easy. I also hear things louder than they are.

    47. Dismythed & JWA

      Mark, the flak you have received over this is based on ignorance. ASD is more than a mental "difference". People who are "different" don't need help. People with afflictions do. I am neural-divergent and need significant help. If I could have it taken away, I would do it in a heartbeat. Ignore the extremists who do not even know what it is like to have a disorder impact everything they do. A person claiming ASD who is successful without help has no idea what it is like for those whose ASD interferes with normal functioning. Stay strong. Help your son. Don't let the ignorant cloud your judgment.

    48. YDXavier

      5:08 look at the kid 's finger when he preesed it

    49. Lucas Lourenço

      As a teen who was once suspected of having Asperger's Syndrome (autistic spectrum) in primary school, I am super happy to see a child with autism (more serious than my case) that has a really cool ability and that this boy lives a completely normal life. Thanks for sharing.

    50. Demon_techno

      Wow that's nice I hope your son becomes like his dad

    51. Elijah Jeremy

      I just started watching your videos and while this was such a vulnerable video it was a beautiful one. I learned so much about this special need. Your son is beautiful too what a sweet smile. Bless!

      I'm on the autism spectrum and unfortunately I'm just low functioning enough not to be successful and well-integrated into society, but just high-functioning enough to realize it and wish for more

    82. pepper will

      He is awesome

    83. Lucas The One

      Cool kid

    84. Deryck Avya Maioli

      I was told for years that it was my "genetic" abnormality /fault that my son has autism and (my other sons have problems), so being a great parent and appreciating them, supporting them and giving them tools for independence, and love, are key for me. I care about the their reception in the world and I know how superficial and abnormal the world is, yet their exposure to the better side of the world overcomes the rest! much success with everything

    85. Patrick Moats

      you are a great father mark

    86. Nichole Prinkey

      Our son is also on the spectrum. He can paint like on one I have ever met. I am begining to think about his future. I want to open a landscaping and design company to help employee him and others like him. He wants to feel like he belongs and can make a difference in our community. I would love to have a mentor who can help me navigate funding and help getting this up and running. Thank you for releasing this. It means the world.

    87. Cindy Magee

      Thank you so much for posting about your family and son! Such a great video. My oldest is high functioning and he is such a blessing. Sharing the video. :)

    88. Evangeline Jones

      Aww that is so sweet

    89. Chris Miller

      I know you likely probably won’t see this comment but as a parent of a child on the profound end of the spectrum myself I just wanted to give heartfelt thanks for making this video and sharing it. It is the best I’ve seen since Loving Lampposts.

    90. Morghan Tuttle

      Thank you for being brave enough to share this. I have a sister with special needs and I agree that she is SO successful because she loves so hard and makes the most of so many difficult situations. I hope more people will come to accept that quality of life isn't so easy to put a label on.

    91. NightSkyACC /\

      Damelio sisters 🤣🤣🤣

    92. Beers Crew Family

      This is beautiful! I have 3 children on the spectrum and two of them have several other health issues. It's a day by day living. I love my special children. They are smart, funny and loving in their own way. Biggest thing I have noticed is, they are real and genuine.

    93. MuixGohanX

      I think i have either ADHS (German word, dont know the english one) or i am Autistic

      1. MuixGohanX

        @Unimpressed Link thx

      2. Unimpressed Link

        It would be ADHD in English, same thing but "syndrome" is changed to "disorder"

    94. Charlie McLean

      So much love for this video. Thank you Mark

    95. Hidden Godly poop

      Then what is this Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder im dutch btw and is it a bit like autism or not

      1. Unimpressed Link

        It's not really like Autism. ADHD is mostly found in children (although some adults can keep it from childhood). If you have ADHD, you might not be able to focus on things a lot, and you may be very hyperactive and can't stay still for long.

    96. Michael Benetos

      protecc that smile

    97. Flippy Dippy

      I want a letter

    98. Kasey R.

      Anyone who could be mean to your son deserves the death sentence

      When do you learn the understanding of the word no if you never look it up I've always known the meaning of no but idk here where I learned it so then where did I learn it and how if this makes sense

      1. Red Fox

        @Unimpressed Link Ohhhh

      2. Unimpressed Link

        When we are babies, our parents hammer the word "no" into our brains. When we do something we're not supposed to, our parents tell us no. Among other words, no was forced into our brains from a young age. It's a bit like dogs. If your dog does something bad and you scold them for it and punish them, they learn that it's a bad thing to do. Even though babies and dogs can't understand human language, they learn through action.
