Event Details

It is estimated that more than 3.5 million Americans have an autism spectrum disorder (Buescher et al., 2014). Many of these individuals have typically developing brothers and/or sisters. Being the brother or sister of a person with autism is seen by some as a good thing, for others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in between. Siblings will often have the longest-lasting relationship with an individual who has a disability – one that could easily exceed 65 years. Throughout their lives, these brothers and sisters will share many – if not most – of the same concerns that parents of children with autism experience, as well as issues that are uniquely theirs.

Join us on Friday evening, January 6th to hear and learn from the experts themselves, a panel of local siblings, as they share their unique perspective on life growing up as a brother or sister to an individual with autism. Siblings will answer questions from the moderator and, if time allows, will take questions from the audience. This presentation is appropriate for parents and providers, as well as siblings in grades 3 through adulthood.
