Garrett is eleven years old and has Autism. I am Ryan and I am Garrett’s thirteen year old typically developing brother. Garrett is neither high nor low functioning. He would be considered moderately autistic. He loves watching T.V. and reenacting all of his favorite shows. It is not uncommon for me to walk up stairs and find a large array of toys spread out across the floor, either in shambles or setup in a specific way similar to whatever he is reenacting. His favorite T.V. shows constantly vary. One week it will be Thomas the Tank Engine, and the next Godzilla. He apparently does well in school, although trying to make him study is like trying to teach an ostrich how to fly. Garrett never lacks in his comical behavior and will always be the one to make you smile.
Ryan, brother of Garrett
