How do you explain autism to siblings? How do you reconcile the different ‘rules’ and boundaries that might apply? How can you make time for siblings?
Our presenter will explore some of the issues and discuss solutions to help make family life more positive for everyone.
Our speaker will use a mixture of activities, talking, videos and resources. The last hour of the session will be a Q & A along with time to talk with other participants.
This session is free for parents and carers of children with autism although donations on the day towards our costs are welcome.
Session: Supporting Siblings

Could you help?
We are looking for volunteers to assist us at our sessions with setting up, putting away, meeting and greeting etc. We also welcome interest from people with autism, siblings, parents and carers who might like to speak at our events. We are happy to discuss the different roles and the level of commitment required. To register your interest, please contact Karen or Lizzie on 01305 213135 or email [email protected]
