  • If I look younger here it's because this video is actually 2 years old and it's just taken us this long to feel comfortable releasing it since this is the internet. So please be kind and please consider sharing and donating :)

    • Heart warming Mrs mark rober, your son is a very happy kid and I hope it stays that way. Also you should make the envelopes merch and donate the money to color the spectrum

    • bye 👋

    • i know mine is not as bad as you really sweet son but i have dyslexia and get made fun of for it and i have depression and anxiety and i love your son that he gose through that and it makes my day to see that he can make it through that and if he can go through that than i can to. Yall macke my dad

    • Most wholesome video ever. Even Mark himself started to get sad and studder.

    • I actually didn’t even notice. I thought it was just a different haircut 💇🏻‍♂️

  • Oh my g- you have a son! Congratulations!! 🎉

  • You did show him in one of your videos you showed him in your skin a watermelon trick at 2:31

  • Thank you for also NOT using a puzzle piece!!!!

  • That is so sweet. I love how you do so much for your son. This is in May 12 but when someone says or dose something like that for someone different then them it can create a whole story. When you said that you don't show your son in videos, that made me cry on the inside because how different he is. Being autistic is not a disability, but something a human can't do. I heard a bunch of sad and crazy stories but since you make videos like this and telling us how things work it helps me think or maybe just not me but everyone. You have a special someone in your family and that's ok. If you see this, Tell your son that to keep on being the kid he is and to keep on laughing. :)

  • There are cool people, and there are even cooler people (people that are autistic) -Joycawn

  • sorry mark

  • Uk wat ur son and all his friends has got many powers... And the one striked me the most is how they express their emotions... I find it hard to express how I feel... It's so complicated in my head... How ur son laughs at ur simple jokes it's like magic to me how that kid was so amazed to see Santa to laugh to love that's their super power I'm glad u have them yes they made me smile they made everyone smile he needs to be acknowledged I wish if I can write him a letter What's ur fav colour son

  • I'm happy mark rober... I'm happy

  • who threw the dog oh no

  • my brother has this

  • My brother has autism... thanks to you i know how he thinks and feels Thanks

  • Mark can you find a way to keep the carbonation from Diet Coke so that if you pour it into a bathtub then pour mentos into it, the chemical reaction occurs and it shoots up?

  • As an autistic... I am moved by this.

  • i swear i would donate if i wasn't broke

  • No judgement bro, your son is cute.

  • Your son is unique and perfect

  • Great video as always🍾 🎀❤️🎀

  • I wish I could smile as much as him.

  • Whenever I come out of my room I get a "oh look who came out of their cave", so it's safe to say that he has a better social life than me

  • This was so sweet

  • this is beautiful 😍

  • My heart is warmed by this!

  • If you didn't already know how many of your childhood fans were kids on the Spectrum and their parents, I hope you understand it now. Thank you for this. You just made my kiddo feel so awesome because your family looks just like ours. 💗

  • I donated like 30 bucks

  • My niece is autistic. She is beautiful and though she has trouble with social interactions she can sing like no one else. Her voice has such resonance and vibrato you would never know she was nine. You never know what your son will accomplish especially with such loving parents. Autistic people have done some great things.

  • Thank you mark.I have a friend how has autism. I also play football with him

  • I totally get your fear of posting this, I get bullied so much for this, especially online. 🥺

  • This makes me happy!

  • I grew up having a learning disability and I just found out I have autism today I was literally talking to one of my friends and I was listening to music on my TV then on my phone and talking to them outside my phone they asked me how I did and I don’t know how to do it and I did not explain it but I am really hard times reading but I have great times with math. So Forssman judges them try to figure them out first there’s no room for a trip when we have no control of it

  • AW! He is so cute! My cousin has autism and it's amazing seeing the growth I love this video

  • I myself am autistic, typically when I say a joke it's really messed up, and I can have no filter to let me know when to stop. And in some cases being able to hear, and feel every slight thing can help a lot. Over time personally I've been able to easily focus on what I'm supposed to be doing easily, while also hearing anything that's said in my house. I don't think seeing how people feel through their facial expression is necessarily an autistic thing, but I could be wrong.

  • i gust moved into a new state and one of my new friends is autistic and is really nice but Suicidal): i try my best to remind him he is important and i hope it is working ):

  • Amen! we are very lucky to have them.

  • What an amazing boy.

  • Goodness this is so incredibly beautiful. Thanks for reminding us that the most important aspect of parenting a unique child is seeing the is beautiful in them and defending it with all the joy and grace we have. Your son is so fortunate to have your love (almost as fortunate, it seems, as you are to have his). Thanks for having the courage to share, and for doing it so incredibly well.

  • Wdym nothing is wrong? he’s normal like other kids

  • I am autistic and I have an ability to pay attention to stuff without even looking at it

  • I have 2 brothers with down syndrome they are so cute

  • ngl when he started off with "That was my son" I found it very funny to think of it as ""that" WAS my son."

  • I have autism!!!

  • Thank you for showing us your life!

  • Thank you Mark. As a father of an amazing human being with autism, I appreciate listening to your son's story. They are a true blessing!

  • bro this was the best one

  • What a beautiful video! We have loved your science related videos for years; how special to get a glimpse of your family - your son’s huge smile is contagious, for sure. Thank you for putting this out there and for your work to support the autistic community. 💙

  • This is by far your best video ever! A poem for your son, When you run the ground shakes The sky opens and mere mortals part Part the way to victory Where your Mom and Dad will meet you In the winner’s circle And lay a blanket of flowers around your neck. Respectfully, Our Family

  • Your son is so sweet

  • I wish I was half the dad you are

  • Your so is really nice and you should be proud of him so I’m not binging mean but he’s go to be like you as he gets older

  • bruh some respect for more family not just your son

  • If you see in that watermelon party tricks and he's actually in that video but I just thought whos child is it and now watching this video I know now he's truly a wonderful child bless yous 🙏😊❤️

  • Thanks for sharing Mark! You have a beautiful family, and an awesome son!

  • Can you please do a video on earthquakes? :>

  • As a teacher of students with special needs, and as a neuroatypical person myself, I appreciate this video so, so much. Thank you for sharing your family's story.

  • Your son seem amazing you should not be scared to show him to the world

  • Did we raise over 3 million dollars HOLY

  • Now, I would love to be his friend, not because he is mqrk Rober's son, but because he is in my age group and would personally lighten my day, I could learn so much from him and we could talk about our differences.

  • Amazing. Thank you so much for making this known.

  • I love his big smile

  • I like him he's cool and also if I had a son like him I would 100% do the same thing you would you are a great father with a great kid :)

  • Amazing video

  • I have ADHD and ODD, I get mad at small things, and I take many pills throughout the day. My brothers and cousins try and do things it tick me off. Even my dad jokes around and my parents don’t tell my brothers to stop antagonizing me. I have to walk away and keep my hands in fists so I don’t hit anything because I get so mad. I don’t realize when I talk loudly, and I have to be quite all the time because my dog gets stressed with loud noises. Having disabilities and mental issues aren’t easy. I also hear things louder than they are.

  • Mark, the flak you have received over this is based on ignorance. ASD is more than a mental "difference". People who are "different" don't need help. People with afflictions do. I am neural-divergent and need significant help. If I could have it taken away, I would do it in a heartbeat. Ignore the extremists who do not even know what it is like to have a disorder impact everything they do. A person claiming ASD who is successful without help has no idea what it is like for those whose ASD interferes with normal functioning. Stay strong. Help your son. Don't let the ignorant cloud your judgment.

  • 5:08 look at the kid 's finger when he preesed it

  • As a teen who was once suspected of having Asperger's Syndrome (autistic spectrum) in primary school, I am super happy to see a child with autism (more serious than my case) that has a really cool ability and that this boy lives a completely normal life. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wow that's nice I hope your son becomes like his dad

  • I just started watching your videos and while this was such a vulnerable video it was a beautiful one. I learned so much about this special need. Your son is beautiful too what a sweet smile. Bless!
