I Have a Brother With Autism

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 48 People

    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...

    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...

    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...
