This is awesome! This young teen, who is autistic gets up in front of the whole school at the talent show and sings "Let it Go." It didn't go as planned, it actually went better. It takes a lot of courage for thing young man to get up in front of so many people, most kids without autism wouldn't do this but he did and he did great!!
Do you know what autism is? It's a serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact. It cannot be cured. It impacts the nervous system, inappropriate social interaction, poor eye contact, compulsive behavior, impassivity, repetitive movements, self-harm, or persistent repetition of words or actions, there are so many different things it can do to someones body and it can last a lifetime.
So, look at this video again after learning just a little about autism and tell me how brave this young man is. I have been around quite a few children with autism and believe me when I tell you, this wasn't easy for him. I'm so very happy for this young man to build enough courage to do something that he loves to do, sing! It melts my heart, from knowing so many children with this horrible disease, to seeing this, it's amazing.
These parents have to be very proud of him and he has to be very proud of himself. I love how everyone went crazy for him when he was done, they may not have realized what it did for him, built his self esteem, made him a little less nervous, you can tell when he walked off stage how nervous he was. How cute! I love things like this :)
