Share your favorite YouTube tribute to #Autism



So many times I have been asked what it feels like to find out your child has autism. I never really have the words but this is a song that really helped me after Emmett and Elliott were both diagnosed. I think it says more than I could.

No that I’ve shown you mine, why not show me yours 😉

You can simply find your favorite video on YouTube that is autism related or makes you think about your kids and embed it in a comment below. Perhaps there is a song on YouTube that you just find inspiring and would like to share. I think this could be a really cool thing to do. We can all learn something about each others tastes and discover new and inspiring videos on YouTube 🙂

Here is another really good song. It always makes me think of my kids.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this song by a group called Analogue Transit. It's called Breathe and I listen to this every single day. It helps me to remember that things will someday get better. This is also included on the Acoustic For Autism CD.

I also wanted to get a dialogue going on tributes to autism. This is my personal favorite video on YouTube that is a dedicated tribute to autism and those impacted by it. Please listen and enjoy. I find it so inspiring and get goose bumps every time I watch it.

This isn't a song, but it shows a kid with autism communicating using Rapid Prompting Method (RPM). I have personally used this method to teach two of my kids and it works. Please note that the boy in this video is pointing to letters independently with no one "assisting" him….NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH FACILITATED COMMUNICATION!!

Some live in societies where Special Needs is not a topic for open discussion. Thankfully, there are people willing to work tirelessly to improve life for special children. We must tell these caring people that they are appreciated and not alone. The purpose of this PSA is to promote that understanding. Here are 150 of the many autism logos on the Internet.

This, is my song, for my daughter. Serenity by Godsmack.


I feel these lyrics sums up my thoughts and feelings about my daughter.

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we re-light the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control
