The lives of autistic people and their families are still mysterious to a lot of people who are not autistic themselves and do not have any autistic relatives. There are plenty of mixed messages about autism in general in the media, and finding a personal perspective on the issue can make a big difference. In this video, people will get a firsthand account of what it is like to have an autistic older brother from the perspective of an autistic person’s twenty-year-old younger brother.
The brother is largely positive about his experiences with his older brother. He stresses the normalcy of their relationship and the fact that they’re not so different from any other pair of siblings. The account of their relationship has a documentary quality to it, which should make it seem more educational.
