Practical tips for parents to help siblings cope with the behaviors of a child with Aspergers
By Dave Angel
Siblings of children with Asperger's Syndrome are suffering
Having a child with any type of developmental disability can be very stressful for the parents and the siblings of that child. This may be seen to be even more so at times for children with (physically) hidden syndromes like Asperger's Syndrome.

Now you have a chance to provide your other children with that special time that they so desperately need with you.
I wish, more than some might ever know, that this had been available when our daughter was younger (she's 18 now) because she went through so much with our son and she, and we, missed out on so much together because of his special needs.
This is time that I can NEVER get back and it breaks my heart.
Don't let this happen to you and your children, the siblings of your child(ren) with special needs.
There's a program that provides respite care, they care for your child(ren) with special needs which gives you the perfect opportunity to spend time with your other child(ren).
Go ahead and check it out. It doesn't hurt to look and you may find that you gain something you didn't realize you were missing with your non-special-needs child(ren).
Remember, it's special time lost that you can never regain. Don't let that happen. I did.
My daughter will never know those special times we missed, and I will always regret missing the lost time with her and making her miss those special times in her early years that every child deserves.
Even now, she's 19 years old, and I still see the hurt in her eyes when I have to put my son first. Some might say, oh she's 19 she should know better, but she's been on the back burner all her life. You can see in her eyes that the hurt is there and it runs deep.

Wonderful Autism Apps / Applications ... and ... some of my favorite books and other goodies
I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!
For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.
As he heads into adulthood (he turned 18 on Dec 13 and yes I need to update some things at my website such as my home page that says he's 17) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".
That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in. It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do before your child hits "real life". But overall a helpful book.
Please contact me if you'd like to send a copy of your book to me for review. I would absolutely love it!
Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc. I'm interested in them all. :) And if you autograph it that would be SUPER cool! ;)
