Brilliant child. Wonderful mother .:) Thx
Wonderful video. It made me cry a little.
so sweet. children with “no social genes” ask the questions the rest of us are too (socially) scared to ask…
I’ve heard this one before. I loved it.
did I tear up? Yes, yes I did.
in a good way :)
Great video. I have a niece with Asperger’s. This reminded me of her and the good/hard job I see my sister (her mother) doing.
I want to be that kind of mom.
Being a teacher and having taught a student with Asperger’s I totally “got” that video. Very good stuff.
I have to ask though, you find all of this great stuff on the internet…
do you have a job?
Thank you for sharing this video Abraham.
I’d like to hear what Amy has to say about all this.
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah, “Blah blah blah blah.” Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah? Blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah… and blah. (All that blah is the revised version of what I originally wrote in this comment which is why I rarely leave comments.) If what I said made no sense, I’m not surprised. To sum up; I liked that video and it was sweet encouragement. Thanks for that.
You put into words what I am always feeling. I especially liked the quote: “Blah blah blah blah.” So poignant.
Thanks for commenting!
i love asperger’s kids.
the animation for this was wonderful–how it danced the unspoken of this interview into life! i wonder about the artist’s process for it and what actual visuals of the mom/child (s)he had to work with.
my favorite dialogue/animation pairing, i think, is “the people who really get to know you *love* you” // “like ben, or eric, or carlos?” which led into…
2 points that made me laugh OUT LOUD:
- “first amy *loved* claudia, then she hated claudia, and then she loved claudia, then she hated claudia* (with all the face/hand gestures)
-”well, i was the one who made you a parent.”
thanks for sharing this, abraham.
My 4 year old son has autism. This is a really special video. I can’t wait to show it to my wife. Thanks Abraham.
The cockroach really is the insect we all love to hate, especially in Texas where they are giant.
I had to watch this again. I love it.
I’m trying to figure out their accent, have any idea?
I don’t know about the mum (who just sounds American to me), but the boy sounds a bit like a boy I know whose accent is a sort of mixture of Scottish and English.
I wish I asked questions like him…
(We'll never share your info)
