This revised and updated edition takes a fresh look at what it's like to grow up as the brother or sister of a child with autism -- the basics of sibling relationships at all ages and how autism can affect these dynamics. Parents get important advice about balancing responsibilities for each child, encouraging their kids to share feelings, explaining autism to other children, and initiating play and interaction between siblings. This new edition includes case examples reflecting improvements in applied behaviour analysis (ABA) techniques, new photographs, an updated resource section, and tips on how technology can help siblings and their families connect with other families. Throughout the book, family case studies provide insights into how other families deal with common concerns and situations.
