A Brother with Autism

According to Spencer Timme, it’s incredible having Mitchel as a brother. Every case of autism is different, some more severe than others, and not every person with autism is like Mitchel, who is fortunate to have a very good relationship with his younger brother, as seen in this video.

From Spencer Timme:

“If any of you want to contact me or have any questions feel free to e-mail me at timmesc@dukes.jmu.edu I want to hear your stories about knowing someone with autism!”

BBC My Autism And Me

The BBC produced “My Autism and Me,” a special piece about autism presented by a young lady by the name of Rosie, who has Asperger syndrome. Though autism affects the way Rosie and others with autism live and see the world, as seen in this video, Rosie says it makes her unique and who she is.

While telling her own story, she also informs the audience about three others with autism: Ben, Tony and Lenny. Autism is a spectrum and Rosie’s presentation helps to demonstrate to the audience the different ways that people with autism are affected by it.
