With the help of his mother and grandmother, the young boy has learned to cook and clean, play the guitar, ride a bike and write poems.
He has even become a teacher.
His father, Andre, was a child psychologist.
He taught Andre the importance of love and compassion.
He said: ‘He has become a really special person and it’s so important to see him like this.
He is an amazing kid, he is very bright, he has been reading a lot and is so kind.’
Andre and his wife, Valentina, have four children, four boys and one girl.
Andre said he had tried to teach his children about life and the world around them.
Andre added: ‘We are trying to create a home environment where he can play, sing and learn.
I am very grateful for what he has done for us.
He loves to help us with everything.’
Andre has also started his own business and started a parenting website.
His aim is to raise awareness of autism and help parents get to grips with the condition.
Valentina said: I am so grateful to my husband Andre for what we are doing, it’s an incredible thing.
He also knows how to help others and wants to give back to the community.
Andre said: We are always here for him, we have been with him every day for the last 10 years and we love him so much.
He wants to go on and be a teacher, a lawyer, a businessman and even a father.
Andre and Valentina are hoping to raise money for a scholarship for children with autism.
