Brothers and sisters

So lately I’ve started looking for more resources on siblings of kids with autism in regards to my two younger kids and their relationship with their brother. As they’ve grown up, I’m realizing that maybe I haven’t done enough to foster their relationship and maybe I need help.

Up to this point, I’ve come across mostly information regarding younger kids and from organizations that I’m familiar with. The only one that was new to me is an organization called Siblings of Autism. I plan to touch base with them tomorrow to see all of what they have to offer.

Meanwhile, I will continue to do some more research, hopefully finding more geared towards older kids and their siblings. As I find more, I plan to create a page with links towards those resources but for siblings of all ages.

Sincerely-

So as I sit here, trying to do what I need to do for my son, I came across this article. Written by someone who is himself autistic, Kerry Mango, it was definitely a pick-me-up article for anyone who is the parent of someone with I like to call special abilities.

The article is entitled “To Any Special Needs Parent Who’s Having One of Those Days ” over at Kerry Mango’s website. Well worth the read, for any parent having one of those days.

If you’re a sibling of someone with special abilities, he’s also written an article especially for you. It’s entitled “To the Siblings Who Love Someone on the Autism Spectrum“. Again, well worth the read.

Sincerely-
