“My Autism,” – by George. A 9 year old makes a video to explain his autism to others.

   “Most of the time I can make eye contact with you when you speak to me. That wasn’t always the case. Like a lot of other kids with autism I might not have been looking, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t listening.”
