My brother David has autism. He's older than me so I've never had my family to myself. I do love my brother, especially when he makes me laugh when he's doing something funny behind Mum and Dad's back, like sticking his tongue out and blowing raspberries.
I get upset sometimes when I see how tired and angry my Mum gets. She sometimes shouts at me and I hear her crying when I've gone to bed. I worry about her. I worry about my brother too because I see people staring at him in the street when we go out shopping.

I didn't want my friends at school to know about my brother as I didn't want them to pick on him or say anything nasty, but I told my teacher and she told me that she has an older brother with autism.
I've been able to talk to her about things when I get upset and she listens to me. I don't want to tell my parents because I don't want to bother them.
