Autism Misconception By: Nick

Autism places a strain on family dynamics, especially for siblings. First of all, siblings have to take responsibility for their other sibling. As we read we found that Kathrine yells at her mother for making her watch David when she wants to go and do something else. In addition, siblings feel neglected of attention. As we read, Kathrine feels like her dad never makes time for her, but time for David. For example, Kathrine wants to go to the mall, but she has to go to David’s OT instead. Finally, siblings feel like their sibling gets in the way. Kathrine doesn’t let David talk or even interact with Kristi. For example, Kathrine worries that David will ruin her friendship with Kristi. In conclusion, we see how hard the impact can be having a sibling with autism, and the struggles it can cause.
