   schema:description ""Growing up with a sibling on the autistic spectrum can be difficult, and the needs of a child with autism often overwhelm a family, leaving neurotypical children feeling overshadowed. This book recognizes that brothers and sisters of autistic children need just as much love and attention as they do, allowing siblings to step into the limelight and share their experiences, both good and bad. This collection of personal stories has been written by siblings for siblings, and each individual tale comes directly from real-life experience, offering everything from empathy and constructive advice to reassurance that occasional feelings of resentment and embarrassment are entirely normal. Siblings of all ages candidly recount how being 'the neurotypical one' can be tiring and frustrating, but equally rewarding, and every story is injected with wisdom gained by young people who often have to grow up a lot more quickly than their peers. This book is essential reading for children and teenagers with a sibling on the autistic spectrum, and for parents wishing to understand how autism in the family will affect their neurotypical child."--Publisher's description."@en ;
