How autism affects siblings & 9 ways to offer support

Wondering how autism affects siblings?

You’re not alone.  How autism affects siblings and their relationship is a common curiosity.  After “K’s” diagnosis, it was one of the things I thought about most often.  I can’t tell you how many google searches I poured over.  A few years later,  I chose to write my sociology research paper on the effect of Autism on Neurotypical Siblings (NTs).

How very few research papers I found on the topic back then shocked and saddened me.  Most of what I did find had more to do with the autism siblings’ risk of developing the disorder themselves. Fortunately, there’s suddenly a flourishing body of research, which will hopefully continue to grow.  So, if you’re curious about the outcomes of autism sibling relationships and ways to help, I’ve got some information to help you.
