Understanding Brothers and Sisters on the Austism Spectrum

Video; Streaming Video; Online
This series of age-appropriate videos shares the best practices developed by brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers of children diagnosed with autism. The overall program covers a range of autistic behaviors and is divided into three age-appropriate videos for siblings and one video for parents. After viewing, siblings should have a better understanding of the reasons for their brothers and sisters' behaviors and should be more tolerant and supportive. Recommended by the Yale Child Study Center of the Yale University School of Medicine. Excellent for teachers or counselors working with children, adults and families affected by autism.. “...The interviews are interspersed with narrative segments that offer encouragement and insights. The siblings interviewed are articulate and candid about the challenges and joys of living with their autistic siblings. The video offers practical advice and support and stresses positive reinforcement and patience as effective tools...” School Library Journal.
