Well he is saying (through a Dynavox) that he knows that he has autism. He doesn't like it when people talk to his family and not to him. He loves having autism because it's who he is but he doesn't like it making him unable to speak have physical problems and other stuff.

I don't really understand why whe girl holding the camera keeps asking him the same question. She asked at the beginning how he felt not being able to talk, then asked it again at the end twice in succession.

maybe she is repeating questions cuz thats how his therapy goes? but personally that would make me upset. always hated that too when i was little, them talking about me like i wasnt there. but at the some time kinda glad because i heard stuff they would not have told me directly and helped me learn better, and also to challenge them about my abilities. idk about loving autism. i hear that alot with kids being interviewed. almost like it is a slogan. "I love my autism". I dont love it or hate it, i just accept it.

The device/software the teenager is using seems very useful. It allows him to express himself which he obviously appreciates.

I think because sometimes he hits the wrong button, so she's checking to make sure he said what he wanted to say.

This video made me smile and rock back and forth (which I usually do not do)
