Join us on Friday, June 7, 2019 to hear and learn from a panel of local siblings, as they share their unique perspective on life growing up as a brother or sister of an individual with autism.
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. 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 of the same concerns that their parents might have, as well as issues that are uniquely theirs.
The panel will be moderated by ASCV Executive Director, Ann Flippin, proud sister of a young man with autism. Siblings will answer questions 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.
