Having a sibling with special needs does not define you for who you are. This journal unpacks the diagnosis of the reader's sibling, how it affects them, assists with strategies, and allows a sacred space to delve within. A great resource that acknowledges the important role siblings play.
Lots of space to draw, write, paste, scribble and whatever else takes the fancy makes this useful in understanding one's own self as well as the brother or sister...The book covers an immense range of emotions and will give a child having difficulties accepting the autistic member of the family the empowerment he or she needs to be patient and loving.
