Sibling Connections:   Celebrating the Differences

Attention Siblings!  You have a special connection to autism.  What does having a sibling with autism mean to you?  How does it affect your life?   What makes having a brother or sister with autism special?  Your sibling is different from you and your relationship is different, too.  Tell us how they are different and why are those differences important to you.
