My presentation will be about my experience living with my brother David who has Autism. This presentation will share with people the responsibilites I hold living with someone who is Autisitc. I want to create awareness about Autism for those who do not know what it is and for those who are living with it themselves.

      • Furthermore, Autism is an illness that affects children at an early age. Families learn to live a life that devotes a lot of their time catering to their family member who suffers with the illness. These children grow up to be unique individuals just like anyone else would but it is due to the extensive help by their family members and friends around them that get them to be in the state they are in today. By showcasing my experiences growing up David and his illness, I hope to create awareness about Autism. I can relate with others who know or have a family member who is Autistic. I can share in the good experiences such as witnessing my brother trying new food or saying a new word. There are also bad experiences where David has his tantrums and certain steps have to be taken to make sure that David does not harm himself or the people around him .
      • On a regular basis, I get David ready for bed which requires me to brush him teeth, wash his face and help him dress into his pajamas. When it comes to meals, David is unable to cook for himself so our father and I prepare him meals and help him clean up after himself once he has finished. Together as a family we get things done for David and we make sure that he is well taken care of and happy as can be.

    • David- An amazing brother anyone could ever wish for.
      • Our dad painted this picture for David. In the picture, David is looking away as if he is ignoring the viewer. When David was a child, our parents thought he was deaf because he hardly responded to his own name. A child not responding to their own name is a sign that a child may have Autism.
