What Is It Like To Have An Autistic Brother? This Guy Made A Touching Video About It.





For most of his life, Spencer Timme has been asked what it’s like to have an older brother with autism. People often wondered if it’s difficult or frustrating but he simply shrugs it off saying “Nah, not really,” throwing in a hearty laugh along the way.

Spencer Timme made a video about his autistic brother and it has since gone viral.

“What an amazing love story! I have two kids with autism and even though they are as different as night and day . . . I saw a lot of your brother Mitchel in both of my kids!
