Oh Brother - Growing Up with a Special Needs Sibling

Living with a sibling who has special needs can be difficult for a child to deal with, day after day. This book provides anecdotal examples, self-help guidlines and practical coping techniques to promote positive, realistic attitudes as well as the benefits of having a special needs sibling.

Being the brother or sister of a child with special needs has special challenges. And Becca has some great ideas for dealing with them - after she accepts that she can't send her brother Johnathan to another planet! In this helpful book based on the experiences of a real-life family, Becca discusses finding the right kind of friends, getting quality time with parents, caring about a special needs sibling without becoming another parent, and much more. Todd with both humour and honesty, Becca's story - and her kid tested solutions - are an inspiration to special families everywhere.
