Must See: What it’s Like To Have a Brother With Autism (Viral Video)

Spencer Timme published an incredibly heartwarming short film online in January, titled “What it’s Like To Have a Brother With Autism.” In the video he talks about his special relationship with his older brother Mitchel who has autism, and explains how he is the most important person in his life.

Spencer writes in the Youtube video description:

Hey guys, here with a short video I made about what it is like for me to have an older brother with autism, I hope you enjoy it and see how blessed I am to have Mitchel as my brother. I love him to death and I want everyone to see how awesome our bond is!


*note, every case of autism is different some more severe than others, not every autistic person is like my brother. This video speaks on behalf of my personal relationship with my brother.

If any of you want to contact me or have any questions feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] I want to hear your stories about knowing someone with autism!

The song used in this video is Always Gold by Radical Face, the song somewhat inspired me to make this video because it speaks of a tight lifelong bond between two brothers.
