From Seattle Children’s Hospital

Join us for an insightful evening featuring the unique perspectives of brothers and sisters of individuals living with autism. In this dynamic and candid panel, siblings will share their personal stories and insights, and provide a platform for parents, siblings and other community members to ask questions about their journey of growing up with a sibling with autism.

Every sibling relationship is unique, but having a brother or sister with autism in a family can affect the entire family dynamic. While much attention is paid to the challenges and difficulties faced by parents and siblings of individuals with autism, growing up with an autistic sibling also offers many advantages and hidden treasures that can help shape an individual’s life and character.

Our panel of siblings will share their experiences, wisdom, stories, challenges, and joys living with a brother or sister with autism. A valuable opportunity for parents, siblings, providers, professionals, teachers and self-advocates.

Please join us!
