The contributor also mentions the times when their sibling was teased or tormented and they failed to act through fear of themselves becoming victims. This account is perhaps more honest and realistic in that it acknowledges the frustrations, embarrassment, a sense of being hard done by without having to counter such comments with an immediate positive. I felt emotional through much of this book, in a bitter-sweet way because it exemplifies all that is wonderful about family. This particular edition is in a Paperback format.

Siblings by Jane Botsford Johnson (ebook)

siblings van rensselaer anne botsford johnson jane

This book is essential reading for children and teenagers with a sibling on the autistic spectrum, and for parents wishing to understand how autism in the family will affect their neurotypical child. The individual accounts explore the challenges that families of people with autism have faced, and the techniques they have used to improve the quality of their children's lives, from mega-doses of vitamins and dietary changes to intensive interaction. There are few pictures, so younger children may not like it. Too many books contain just snippets of opinions which the authors use to champion their own voice and because their statements are kept in context there is less likely to be any misrepresentations of their views. My biggest disappointment is that the book is so short. Her true calling in life was to be the grandmother of three.
