Children With Autism, a Booklet for Brothers and Sisters



This booklet is for brothers and sisters from the age of 7 years upwards, although anyone else is very welcome to read it if they would find it helpful.

It will:

  • explain what autism means
  • describe the sorts of difficulties autistic children have
  • suggest ideas for explaining autism to other people who don’t know about it
  • talk about some of the things that you might find difficult as a brother or sister
  • share some of the good things that children have told us about being a brother or sister
