My brother Carlos

Carlos is my older brother, but at the same time he is my "little" brother. He is a 3 year old boy in a body of 23.

From a very young age, he suffers from a rare disease called "West Syndrome", which has later evolved into an autism spectrum disorder. In addition, he suffers from drug-resistant epilepsy, all of which makes him a totally dependent person who needs the permanent supervision of other people who help him in the performance of all his daily activities.

He is happy when he is accompanied and he transmits it to you in a totally disinterested way, through body language (hugs, kisses...) and with a verbal language that, although reduced, is very expressive. He really likes being with his family, because he feels that we are always looking out for him. Also with his colleagues at the day center and friends in his leisure activities. But when we can't give him what he wants, he gets frustrated and angry like a small child, because he doesn't understand that there are things that sometimes can't be and that's why he needs a lot of resources and permanent help.
