Reality of Autism Rarely Seen on TV

Experience the incredible moments that come with living with autism and gain a deeper understanding of the complex world of epilepsy and self-injury. Discover hope, love, and support through resources like the Family Christian Bookstore and community connections. Educational videos on YouTube offer valuable insight into what it’s really like to live with profound to severe autism. Although there may be difficult days, there are also moments of joy and optimism that keep families moving forward.


My name is Adi, and I am the proud parent of Saar, a lively 17-year-old who happens to have autism. I have created a blog,, with the aim to share our family's journey and offer guidance to those who may be going through similar experiences.Saar, much like any other teenager, has a passion for football, cycling, and music. He is also a budding pianist and enjoys painting. However, his world is somewhat distinct. Loud sounds can be overwhelming, sudden changes can be unsettling, and understanding emotions can be challenging. Nevertheless, Saar is constantly learning and growing, and his unwavering resilience is truly remarkable.

    I’m glad you share these videos as well, to few of people really grasp what autism is. I see it everyday so I know I go through some problem solving to figure my kids out, because unlike you the parents of my kids don’t give me all the necessary information I need such as likes, triggers, food preferences, what to do when they are in crisis. I really wish all parents were like you; And i wish he was one of my students he looks like a super fun guy to be around.

    He is such a cutie ! Your a beautiful and inspiring person! He’s made progress because of you bring so open and patient with him. It’s beautiful that you care for him so much! It makes me so sad to see parents who find their autistic child has a burden, although I’m sure it’s hard many times, it just amazes me and inspires me so much that you, you can show him and help him understand life in a way no one else can.

    If he was my age i would so Have him as a boyfriend. He is so cute and I love people who are Autistic because they are so beautiful. And With my aspergers we would do well. I want to be a Social worker and help kids/teens like him feel like they can be themselfs and not be scard of the world.

    @YourNumberOneSource If God wants to heal Jamey he will, but it won’t be from his "autism" it would be from the self abuse and seizures. His autism has never been the problem for us, though the self abuse and seizures are rooted in autism. I guess I’m saying I just want the head punching and seizures to be healed because it’s so physically and mentally painful for all involved.

    He’s very lucky to have parents like you that love him endlessly and take care of him as well as you do.

    aw that’s so cute, your son really is amazing. hey do you think maybe he is having migraines? is that maybe a reason he is hitting himself? also i know that you probably have people giving you ideas about how to stop him hitting himself all the time and r really sick of it, but i have one and i’d feel horrible if i didn’t share. maybe try 2 pringles cans and reinforce them wiith tongue depressors on the inside, and put foam inside. put those on the lower part of his arms that way he can’t bend

    You are a beautiful person all around. I believe people like your son experience more of the spectrum of reality than we do and it is sooo difficult to handle with their type of body that they go into sensory overload. I really believe from my studies of autism, fractality, psychology, and spiritualism that people like your son are immensely valuable and powerful souls trapped in a body somehow not suited to the tuning in of their increased perception, knowledge, and electric energy.

    @mikeymou im just going to feel free to give an autistics point of view to the answer you allready had (maybe you dont care anymore, but i do right now! :P).
    sometimes someone "radiates" trustworthyness and/or kindness, if you have autism your especially sensetive to this. that may be (in combo with his routine) why he reached out to her.

  18. Aluapay says:

    Autistic children and adults have captured my heart. You are so dedicated and amazing for your son. Do you have other children?

  19. SageCaleb says:

    My Caleb is in the spectrum and being 11 is starting to want to be on his own. Now, I must deal with others’ comments, unkind remarks within this medium and others. It is hard not to backlash. Thank you for all you give us with your amazing James. And thank you for you for you are an amazing mom!

  21. nicolaou19 says:

  22. queenfan45 says:

    even with all the struggles with an autistic child, the joy and laughter they give just make anyones heart soar.

  23. mozmom says:

    This is so much like my son and he is called James too. Only my son is obsessed with hair so instead of grabbing that lady’s hand he would have grabbed her hair and sniffed it. Thanks for your videos, they’re great. Much love xx
