Overview

My Brother is Special, My Brother Has Autism tells the story of a little girl's wish of having a baby brother. It covers the anticipation a big sibling feels as she prepares for her new role in the family.
My Brother is Special, My Brother Has Autism highlights the journey of a family as they come to realize that their long awaited little boy is changing from the happy toddler they knew into an introverted less verbal boy. This story, as seen through the eyes of a sibling, expresses the confusion and pain a family feels when a diagnosis of autism is made. The story also highlights the beauty of accepting someone, even though they may be different, and realizing that, sometimes, a dream doesn't end, it just needs to be adjusted.

A diagnosis of autism impacts all family members. Adults are able to speak with professionals, explore the internet, and speak with others in similar situations. Young children have less options. It is frightening for them to see the adults in their lives in distress with little understanding of the reason. This book was written for the children impacted by the diagnosis of someone in their family. It is the hope of the author that this book assists parents, teachers, and other adults, in helping children to cope in these situations.
