    Our Brother Matt

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     rollerskates is a special education teacher, and Matt's oldest sister. 'I love sharing Matthew's story, becuase he has had such an impact on our entire family,' she said. 'Many autism awareness projects I've seen tend to focus on higher functioning individuals with autism. I haven't really seen much public information on children with more severe behaviors and limited communication skills.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Matt has ten brothers and sisters who love him greatly, along with two loving parents. We are so thankful for Matt and all the life lessons he's brought home to each of us. We are all different people because of Matthew!
