Issues Facing Siblings of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Balancing Act in Family Life
19 Thursday June 2014 0hr :58min :3sec
Last fall Dr. Robert Naseef blogged about a young woman he had recently met who faked getting sick as a teenager. She explained to him that it was the only way she could get to spend time one on one with her mother. She was growing up with a brother who has autism. She would take a thermometer and run it under hot water until the mercury showed a fever then show it to her mother. This way she was able to stay home and he with her mom all day. Now she and her mom can laugh about it, but it wasn't funny at the time.
Parents often wonder and worry about how raising a child with autism affects their other children. In this webinar, psychologist Dr. Robert Naseef helps parents explore their own sibling relationships to understand the impact of their child's special needs has on their more 'typical' brothers and sisters. Listen to pick up strategies for meeting everyone's needs.
