Dual Familial Roles: An Asperger's Syndrome Case Story
Ivey, Julie K.; Ward, A. Kris
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v6 n3 Article 1 Feb 2010
Sibling interactions are challenges that all families face on a daily basis. These interactions are significantly more difficult when one child has autism. With the apparent increase in diagnoses of autism, there are more families each year who are dealing with issues of relationships. Children learn, as part of the growing up experience, how to interrelate with their brothers and sisters. They also acquire future parenting styles by watching their own parents and how they relate to children with and without disabilities. This case study explores one woman's childhood experiences with a sibling of undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome and the effects of her experiences as a parent of a son with Asperger's Syndrome.
