Supporting the Siblings
His sister plays with him as though he were a typical sibling. It’s an inspiration to try and emulate how she sees him.
The parents of a little boy with polymicrogyria share how they talk with his older sister (age 3) about her brother and how her perspective is so helpful. “She knows no different. Alden is the brother that she got and she had no expectations. This is an inspiration. She has led me there through her innocence.” The mom shares how it was a blow not to ‘give’ their daughter a neurotypical sibling and that there may be sadness ahead for her.
