MTV Reality Show Features Two Autistic Brothers Navigating Adult Life


Kenny and Brad Benjamin are brothers with a special bond. When they were toddlers, Kenny was diagnosed with Asperger’s, and Brad was diagnosed with autism. They were recently on an episode of MTV’S True Life reality show and gave the world a peek at what it’s like to be an adult on the spectrum. Kenny says, “Think of it as not a curse, but a miracle of sorts.”

Take a look at the clip to get a brief glimpse of this dynamic duo.
