    My 21 Year Old Brother

    My brother has autism but it's not bad autism. He can completely live a normal life but when it comes to socializing that's where it really shows for him. My brother is 21 years old now and I'm only 16. I can't help but think that he went through school with very little friends...

    Back in '97 when I was almost four my baby

    brother was born. This would be something that you would expect to change your life, but I had no clue. I remember him ignoring his toys to watch the ceiling fans. I remember my mom, so young at the time trying to do all she knew to comfort a child that recoiled from her touch...

    My brother has always been different.

    He gets agitated easily and when he does, he bites down on his tongue and hums loudly and monotonously, all the while beating himself with his fists. Sometimes he smacked the sides of his head, sometimes it was his stomach, mostly he hit his thighs. He shakes his hands too, and...

    My Brother

    I have a brother with autism, and at some times it is very difficult. What with the school not wanting to help him, and the kids bullying him, and the teachers not doing anything, I don't know what to do. Unfortunately, he is 4 1/2 years younger than me, so we are in different...

    I'm Carys, a 14 year old from Cornwall, UK. My 10 year old brother Rhys has always been 'different'. He's always been slower learning simple tasks compared to other children and has always had problems socialising. He's never been able to interact with other people 'normally...

    My Little Brother

    My brother is 14 now, and was diagnosed with autism when he was about 3 years old. Since I'm barely 3 years older, the time it took my parents to find a way to deal with him has been an extremely hard one for me when I was younger. I wasn't used to nearly all their attention...

    Shame

    He will sit there at the dinner table, nervous. His head will jolt back and forth, he will rock himself into a trance, and he pops all the bones in his damp hands for hours, all at the same time. He makes grimaces and repeats the same phrases over and over and over. "I'm going to...
