Thank you for this. I've given this link to my son, who is very similar to you and also has the same diagnosis. You are phenomenal and incredibly entertaining. You have a gift for explanation. You should never feel ashamed to share yourself with the world.

"We" totally get that.. FWIW.. My story started with my sons diagnosis... And then I realized, he got it from me. Your video couldn't be more real or perfect to how I feel. An example of if you engage, accept and embrace who you are, its much easier to deal with it all and embrace the strength it can give you.

Yeah I usderstand you mate, i was diognosed fairly young. I too kept my head down at school but blullying put an end go my future, i left school at 14 and i hid, self isolated in my room. Im 19 now and never changed, still hidden away. My only friends are on xbox, i get angry and happy at weird times and about weird things. Like when my "friend 1" talks about alcohol i get angry but if "friend 2" talks about it i just blank it like its nothing. I'm glad people come out about anything cause I world is a hostile place most the time, they'll always be A-holes that hate You for who you are. But leave them behind cause they don't make You, You make You. And ironic twist it I know my personal life is pretty much over cause its been far too long away from anything. But I've always wanted to help people going through pain in anyway. Like the reason I get angry to friend 1's alcohol is cause I wish I could help. They drink too much especially at their age and it hurts me to anger, I dont get angry at them but angry at myself cause I can't help. One of the hardest things for me is accepting things I personally thinks bad but others see as normal like heavy alcohol abuse. Just stay safe people. Theirs greatness in the world

Hell yeah it's your superpower! Kyle, you sir are an awesome person man. I've been following you for a while now. You have a way of explaining some of the most complex things in this world to where people like myself can understand them. I've always been super interested in stuff like time travel, traveling at the speed of light, & quantum physics but could never really understand the vocabulary used. You break it down for guys like myself to comprehend. Thank you Sir!!!!!!

Kyle thank you for your openness and vulnerability. I understand it’s not easy. My son is on the spectrum; he’s higher functioning (according to his diagnosis) but there’s still a lot of ground to cover. This helps me understand him a little bit better, and how I can help him. And like you, he’s very interested in nature. He loves sea creatures - whales and squid - in particular. Given my own habits, I’ve wondered if maybe I was on the spectrum and didn’t know it; regardless, your videos - even personal ones like this - are always helpful. Thank you.

I think a lot of us with AS were once thrown into the schizophrenia basket. But that was a mistake. If anything, we are LESS delusional than the average person. As a tiny child, I was able to see that Santa was fake, as there were Santas ringing bells on many street corners. I questioned the existence of God at a *very* early age - all on my own. When I think back about how I was brought up, there was nothing my parents did to make me this way. There has to be a genetic component. It is a very, very painful thing to have when growing up and not be able to socialize well with other children. It's important for parents to recognize this in their children, and training methods should be devised to improve the way children develop. Maybe even provide special classrooms. But it has to be caught early, while the child's brain is still developing. Oh, and I really, really love animals. I should have gone into dog training.

I firmly believe the Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis is not suitable for many people. Not everyone is disabled on this spectrum; some are hyper-enabled in areas. I believe for those people, the diagnosis should be Autism Spectrum *Difference* .

One of the most important things I have learned about being different: *normal is severely overrated* . *Be yourself! It is impossible, self-damaging, and illegal to be someone else.* Plus, there is only one of you and plenty of everybody else to go around. I know the "You're one of a kind" saying is a bit of a cliche but the probability of there being someone with your exact genetics, memories, strengths, weaknesses, etc... is extremely unlikely. Not even identical twins are the same person. *You be you; nobody else can*

Some tips and strategies I have learned and used: Some eye contact tips are asking yourself "What eye colour does this person have?" and treating it scientifically, or looking at someone's face as a whole rather than concentrating on the eyes alone, or hovering your vision around the general area of their face so you don't always have to look directly at the eyes. You could look at the nose then mouth then etc...

And what i want to say is that videos like these take away some of the fear as to what would change if i found out i had some sort of disorder. So thank you for that Kyle :)

PSA: IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE AUTISM, YOU PROBABLY DO! Just keep that in your mind please folks. Life is hell when you added undiagnosed. It doesn't get a great deal easier when you have your diagnosis, but at least you can understand yourself better. NOW TO YOU DEAR KYLE ; I LOVE YOU FOR TELLING YOUR STORY! We, people on the Autism spectrum, feel so alienated from society. I'm always so glad when a respected person like you speak up about autism. Life is pretty hard when you have autism - and that's when you KNOW you are on the spectrum. I was only diagnosed officially aged 38. Life until then was hell, I never understood the rules or anything in life. People mocked me over things - like my need to be certain over something, or me following rules etc. Life is so much harder when you don't even know, and cannot even understand why you don't fit in. So thank you. People on the Autism spectrum - like I think most of your subscribers are, tend to over index in science and "Black & White" situations. Fun anecdotal "joke"; *Vaccines don't cause autism, Autism causes vaccines* Get it? Because people with autism tend to work in sciences, they're likely the ones who would create vaccines? So autism causes vaccines? Lol

I feel very similar, mine is minor and it tends to not effect me in a negative way very much, but I feel like I act very different and perceive things very differently than regular people. Definitely understand why people think I'm a bit weird after meeting me, was wondering if I was weird my whole life.

I’m in a weird spot when it comes to autism. I was diagnosed very early on and I honestly don’t remember much from childhood. I see a lot of talk about sensory overload, masking, stimming, and whatnot. I haven’t had much experience with any of those. Except for sensory issues, and even those moments are few. Apparently I’ve changed and used to be more sensitive as a whole. Autism as a superpower, I don’t see myself that way. I can’t find any positive traits. I don’t even know if autism is affecting me or if it’s just my own bad habits that bring me down. I don’t know which traits are autism related and which are not. Is it possible to “outgrow” autism? For lack of better term? All I know is that I’m at a place where I’m generally confused, unmotivated, and stuck on where I’m going next. Autism or not, it’s getting annoying for me. Anyone relate?

I don’t understand how autism feels, because it’s an aucoustic disorder. That’s the name right there. The problem is there is an inability to filter sound when listening to someone, so they can’t focus. They can’t look interested because they can’t. Thus, several psychological problems come with it, since the symptom makes the person desire isolation and introversion, and the misunderstanding also leads to maltreatment.

Interesting video, and omg. People eating chips drives me crazy like you, like literal internal burning rage crazy, and as illogical as I know it is, it doesn't make it any easier to deal with. Setting up routines are paramount for me, but the downside is if a routine is upset I get derailed hard, just like little things of self-serve checkouts cause such panic due to it being a different routine, or missing my regular train and having to mentally readjust the rest of my routine... Kills me. Setting up 'brain tricks' (like your keys on your food) I do a lot, putting in place things that help me function 'normally'. I would agree completely that we can't wait for the world to change for us, we have to change for it, even if it is just trying to blend, I always get so depressed for feeling "incompatible with this world", but over the years I have learnt how to get by, even if most of the time it fills me with stress and anxiety.

Can we stop pretending that autism is some sort of blessing? To me it’s just as bad as thinking that if someone is blind that they are blessed with echolocation. My son is autistic and if I could cure his autism tomorrow I would. It’s not a blessing or a talent. Nothing about it makes him more likely to live anything close to a normal life. It’s not a superpower. It’s a disease.

Since childhood, I suspect that something is wrong with me and a lot of what is discussed in this video is true for me as well. I'm just shy, easily distracted, I can't make contact with people, I always work as far away from everyone in the office as possible, I forget everything very quickly, I regularly forget to take the necessary things with me and I don't understand other people. And in infancy, I was mistakenly diagnosed with autism. The last thing I would like now is to know that I have real autism. I definitely have nothing to worry about.

hello Kyle Hill, My name is Darla Cartwright, i am on my fiance's account to comment; I have a nephew named Abel he is 4yrs almost 5 August 16th 2021 and we have not been able to diagnose him but we are over 85% he is in the spectrum of ASD and any help and information you can give me would be greatly appreciated we do not have a lot of resources or help with making sure he has the support and skills he needs. He is my only nephew and I love him so much and I try to help him and try to be there for him as much as possible, he can talk but only when he wants to and he is pretty darn smart, he can figure out how to work anything, he can count and say the alphabet and tell us what color is what but only when he wants to do it, i understand he is still a child but i believe we need information and skills to help him along. I don't think any less of you Kyle, I like you even more and it makes me feel assured that my nephew can be just as amazing as you are, I don't believe ASD is bad or an hindrance, I believe it lets someone see the world differently than anyone else and because of that you can figure out solutions that no one else would be able to imagine, within the last 7 years I seen news of people in schools harming kids with ASD because they were not trained on how to react when someone acts out or have an issue with their surroundings, and sadly to the point they harm the kids that they die and since Abel has been born I have this fear he could die due to someone who cannot handle or react in a proper way. I shall look into AANE and see what they can do for us. You are amazing Kyle and I enjoy your videos because you are smart and funny, you can explain complicated theories and other mathematics processes even for someone who doesn't know that can understand to an extent.

Kyle, as someone who is autistic, just know that there’s nothing wrong with the autistic brain, it just means that our brains are wired a little bit differently. Nothing bad about it, I am quite lucky to have lots of friends, some of wish are autistic as well. When I tell people I’m autistic, a lot of my friends tell me they never would of guessed as I am usually outgoing and social. I’m not perfect, but I do have dedication in my life (I am a first degree black belt in shotokan karate, but due to the pandemic, my dojo has closed).

My youngest has high functioning autism and we were lucky she was diagnosed at around five years old (if your thinking that’s unusual for girls, I know, be we will get to that!) and I realised how much of our life we had already altered to fit around the different way she sees the world and having that diagnosis helped me close the gaps and change what needed to be changed. As a result she has grown up with the knowledge her ASD is just one part of who she is but also not an excuse for poor behaviour but a reason to help us figure out a way to avoid repeating the mistake again. It’s been a long process, far from easy and I have made many a mistake along the way but I now have a fairly well functioning child. Then when she was twelve some aspects of her current behaviour, tied into her past behaviour gave me an a strong suspicion and the day after her 13th birthday, just a few month ago now, she very nervously came out to me as a trans woman. Obviously this now complicates a few things as they need to be taken inconsideration between trans issue and ASD issue but mostly it is a blend of the two. My daughter is so much happier being herself in her home I look at my beautiful daughter and my heart swells to see her so happy. It’s not going to be easy for her but I know she is up to the challenge. I did asker why she was so nervous telling me given I am a lesbian, involved in the community, have a few trans friends, one of whom is very close and she has met several times and is well aware of how much I value the friendship we have but it just goes to show that even when you are in for a space that looks to be as safe as can be, it still takes a lot for anyone to be honest about themselves and open themselves up and then wait for the response. Whatever information you are putting out there about your hidden from view, private inner self and it’s workings it is very frightening and you are as vulnerable as can be. So don’t be upset if someone you know takes time to share, it’s not personal, it’s not that they truly think your reaction will be bad it is just something that take a huge amount of courage because letting people into that private of spaces is like Pandora’s box.

Well conceived and bravely executed. There is another way to describe what you have done here. Leaping off the high-dive like that took guts and was done to benefit others. That's sacrifice, the most stark and universal currency of love in the world. It doesn't matter where on the planet or when in history or what faith: everyone gets it. The viewer comments are versions of joy and thanks. So if I have this right, a guy inclined to social isolation did a bunch of sci-techy videos and then released an act of generosity and love that resulted in a 15,000 strong chorus of joy and thanks. I'm freaking impressed. It don't make you a saint, but perhaps it is on that spectrum, too. Thanks, dude. All the best - Peter Barnes

I discovered your channel today and have learned so many very cool facts about science and history...then I found this video which caused me to goto AANE's website and realize that throughout my entire life I've been completely ignorant of the fact that the things about myself that made me feel like a fish out of water, are the things that if I learn to embrace and use can end up changing my life in a beneficial way. I imagine this was a hard thing to do but I thank you very much for making this video for what that's worth, because it did help me and I'm sure it has/will help many more. Edit: I also have the hypersensitivity to sound but before this had no idea what it could possibly mean or how to deal with it let alone communicate it to others without feeling like a freak or out of fear that I'd be ridiculed for it. Just knowing there are others out there like me makes a huge difference.

In a world of imperfections, in a world where human beings are not perfect, but rather they have weaknesses. And whenever a human realizes what their weakness is, they strengthen themselves in another area of themselves to help combat that or to balance their selves out. And whenever you have something in your life that is a weakness, such as a mental disorder or a disability, it's likely you will strengthen yourself in that area most people do not, that they will start seeing something special about you and something you can do to they cannot because they have different weaknesses so they have to create a different way to balance their selves out, which will be a different strength than yours. Which means your strength will be more needed, but that won't be recognized unless you show that you have that strength. Your weaknesses will always show, you don't have to show your weaknesses intentionally they happen by accident, but your strengths come out intentionally. Our weaknesses can show us what we really need, they can give us a motivation to be a better person than we were yesterday, they give us a challenge that either we can look at as a motivation to improve and do better, or we can let it drag us down and hold us back from being better. Even some people with disabilities and extreme problems in their lives, but they learned more about themselves where they could strengthen in the area to become something better and to be happy. It's even possible that the very issue you have can actually be your greatest strengths that you are capable of wielding. There's no telling what it would be until you try, experiment, examine yourself and put your stuff to the test and keep trying to find more and do more rather than just give up and try to survive and let the world tell you how to live

Thank you for doing this and waiting all this time for the right moment. I’ve often wondered if I’m on the spectrum. I have success with my social life but it wasn’t always that way. I just know I think differently than other so called normal people. I think I’ve trained myself to act normally which has helped me get used to being a part of society but I still feel somewhat alien to a lot of people. I know my case is mild but you’re doing a good thing for people who might feel like their autism is a burden.

I like how you don't really need to tell jokes to be funny. The humor just flows

Thanks for sharing. My son and I had a daily routine of watching a Because Science video everyday after school. He was diagnosed with high functioning autism when he was 4yo and he is now 15. I'm going to show him this video and let him know that somebody he enjoys is just like him.

The reason I love this channel Kyle is that, you remind me a lot of the Game Theorist, before he sold out. Back when he started out it was physics and all that fun stuff, the really interesting things. You are dedicated to numbers and science, and that I love as an engine officer (lots of thermodynamics but hey that's fun!). Don't change man, if you've met one person with autism then you've met one, just as if you've met someone with ADHD.

thank you for making this video, and It suck that YouTube just now recommended it, for reference I'm writing this on 05/14/21, over a month late. To everyone else, please share this video to get it available for anyone who needs to hear it.

I have misophonia as well, but the people I've worked with aren't so kind, so I've lived my work and much of my personal life in headphones. Noise cancelling headphones have been a great addition to the mix.

As someone who works in special education and an advocate for special needs representation I thank you so much for this. I can use this as motivation for students on the spectrum as well as an educational resource to help others understand ASD better. Much love and respect! 🧩❤

Being aneurotypical is unusual and awesome in its own way that neurotypical folks will never understand. ADHD is my superpower, welcome to the club! 👏👏👏

I just want to take the opportunity here as a neurodivergent person that the overall preferred way to refer to someone like myself is ‘autistic person’, not ‘person with autism’. The latter implies that it’s a disease, the former is friendlier and overall less offensive or rude.

Lucky you. Autism and adhd make me incapable of speaking to people, or generally using my brain at all in social situations. Wish I could call mine a super power, but life just isn't worth living when nobidy will join you in it.

The advantages of having aspergers far outweigh any flaws by a large margin, the biggest pioneering figureheads in history all have autism or suspected to. Its a gift from the gods that neurotypicals cannot fathom what it's like to have.
