While living with Chad, a 20-year-old with autism, Jenks experiences not only the challenges of this condition, but discovers a smart, hilarious, and heroic young man.
OMG this has been the most amazing show of my 63 years of TV viewing. Thanks, Jenks for doing this. I recently retired as a teacher of autistic children and especially enjoyed Chad. I pray for Kaylyn each day and am so impressed with how much D Real has matured. Jenks, looking forward to future projects.
As a mom to a 13 year old living with high functioning autism, i want to thank you for doing thisepisode and for doing a yea in the life with Chad. When you took him into NY city and then felt like you did the wrongthis,lige with a personwit autism is like that everyday. It gets easier but i often feels like you are dodging bullets and escaping land mines/
Awesome watched the other story with Chad before he graduated from High school :) I understand its hard living with Autism I have been living with Asperger's syndrome have a great day keep up the great work :D
D-Real and his crew are a true heroes. I was so moved by the story behind the youtube video they made. Inspired!

Wow! This was really great. I really like the bond Chad and Andrew shared. =)
I really loved when Andrew helped Chad on to the rocks with him. It looked so beautiful out there. Chad is a really nice guy and Andrew is so patient and understanding to get to know different people. He seems to be very nice.
I just watched this episode again, because it's my absolute favorite! As a teacher of students with special needs, I know how amazing they are and you really captured that in this show. Thank you for showing how much they have to offer anyone who will give them a chance!
Thank you, Andrew for showing the world of autism and both Chad and his caring parents with compassion, friendship and humor. Amazing episode!
