13-Year-Old Boy Reveals What It's Like To Be a Child With Autism

With the help of his uncle, a young man has revealed what it’s really like growing up with autism.

James Kavanagh asked his 13-year-old nephew Sean a series of questions to raise awareness about the condition.

Sean explains that he has atypical autism before going into more detail about his daily life and giving some advice for those who don’t have autism.

He finishes off with a lovely message, saying: “Just understand that they’re different and they see the world in their own perspective.”
