Siblings talk about the sibling experience

Following yesterday’s post about the importance of hearing more from siblings of special needs, someone pointed out this great video from the Arc of King County in Seattle, Washington.

Watching the video brought to mind a stressful evening last week where my younger child, who is typically developing, expressed their feelings of just how unfair it is that thier brother, who has special needs, doesn’t have to do homework like they do — through tears and with a great amount of screaming. This video convinced me that’s it’s time to ramp up the help my youngest is getting in figuring this all out.

The video is a little on the longer side at nearly 15 minutes, but a great introduction for parents, grandparents, family friends and teachers on the challenges their neurotypical kids might face. It could also be worth showing at a Special Ed Parents Advisory Council meeting or other gathering.
