You just have to do it in a slightly different way than other people. Having OI has really not affected me at all. And the writers on the show are totally fine with it. They always write around it and it works for me.
He is different, but he loves being different. He follows his own beat. If there are any kids out there who are different, I love the fact that they can look on TV and see that and be inspired by that. They love to have fun on set.
The Middle's Atticus Shaffer: 'I Embrace Who I Am With Pride'
I love to hear what the real people have to say and what they like about the show and how they enjoy it. My mom and I would always read aloud and we would love to read in character. My mom thought I might be good for voiceover.
She thought I had a cute voice, so maybe I could do a cartoon or something. And while we were looking into that, we also thought I should get into theater acting, so I tried it and the first audition I went on, I booked it. And it kind of just snowballed from there. My home is my sanctuary and really, what would they film? I love my family and I love what we do, but what would they show? Nothing really happens out here in our little town!
I love to learn. Frankie and Mike are always trying to solve more important things than poor Brick. Mike and Frankie both have to attend a meeting with Brick's teacher every year about his quirkiness and attend his social group's meetings. Brick basically reads his life away and Mike and Brick never get to bond. Mike got Brick into football by having him read up on facts and find his favorite 3-syllable words. Brick began to like football and knows tons of facts, Mike told him that if he can talk sports than he can talk to any guy in the world.
Mike and Brick watching football made Axl jealous. When Mike had his buddies from the quarry over to watch the game, Brick talked too much and made them leave one by one. When Brick used his Father's Day coupons he made for Mike he bothered Mike his whole vacation until Mike told Brick to leave him alone.
Axl Heck is generally a terrible older brother towards Brick by doing things like farting in his face or anything else, but the two get a long quite as they both share a room together. There have been times where they have been shown to have a good relationship like at the end of the Season 4 episode From Orson With Love where Brick admits to Axl that he will miss him when he goes off to college, however, there have been some episodes where Axl antagonises Brick like in the Season 4 episode Twenty Years where Axl purposely spoils the ending for the book Brick is reading making him sad.

It is revealed in Twenty Years that Brick has no people friends only books, making Axl regret his actions, however, Axl makes it up to Brick by making up a different ending, overall, Brick and Axl have a neutral relationship.
Sue Heck and Brick have a good bond when they have to help each other such as figuring out how to cover up the hole in Sue's wall twice, or Sue trying to sound like Frankie on the phone calling Kevin's parents to say that Brick can't attend his son's birthday party which he constantly messes up. When Axl had to look after a baby doll for his school homework, he wasn't very good at it and the baby doll was crying constantly. Brick moved into Sue's bedroom for a bit as he could not sleep with all the crying.
Sue and Brick decided to keep throwing objects at Sue's wall next to Axl's room to cause the baby to keep crying to wind Axl up. But their fun turned into a nightmare when the wall started to crack and ended up becoming a huge hole in the wall. They covered up the hole with Sue's posters, but Sue later confessed in an episode of season 2 when Mike came to punish Sue for going to see an adult film with Carly, which Sue already felt bad about and kept pleading to be punished more.
But in season 4 when Sue and Brick bought an old vault from an antiques shop hoping there would be a ton of money inside. This caused them to create another giant hole in the wall. It is unknown when the wall got fixed again.
Another big hole in the wall was created in Season 8 when Brick and Sue were fighting over Sue's room.

Sue had allowed Brick to stay in her room over the summer while she was visiting Dollywood, but Brick wouldn't move back out after the summer. Sue locked herself in her room and Brick who was dressed as a bowling pin for Halloween broke through the wall where the hole is always created, and created another huge hole.
Mike told everyone to go back into everyone's original bedrooms. Brick dressed up as a bookmark When Axl and Sue fight in church and Mike accidentally whips a book at an old lady's head aiming for Axl, they were called in to have a talk with the new reverend who says that he can have one on ones with people. Just about ready to go Brick admits that he feels invisible which leads Brick to having a one on one. Reverend brings them back in and when Brick's supposed to tell them what he told the reverend Brick claims he would rather have wintergreen toothpaste which the family agrees to do.
On top of that they were starving and ready to go out to eat at King Arthur's. Almost always innocent Sue admits that she got drunk and twerked at a party which led to Sue having a one on one with the reverend. When Brick ask aren't parents supposed to sacrifice for their kids, Frankie takes a peppermint out of her purse and slides it across the floor.
Brick tries it and hates it and Frankie states it's wintergreen, Brick realises he doesn't like wintergreen. Trivia His favourite color is yellow.
