Research suggests most siblings of children with autism cope well with their experiences. However, that does not mean, that they do not experience special challenges with dealing with their sibling who has autism. There are special needs on these siblings, and being able to manage these demands will make their childhood easier and will equip them with skills that will make them more resilient. Needless to say, the most important teachers of these coping skills are the child’s parents.
Jozel Navoa is looking for a Manila (Philippines) resident who is 18-35 with a sibling with autism (who is also 18-35 years old). Please support and share this study.
To have a glimpse of the challenges being experienced by siblings with autism, please read this letter.
