Episode #59 | Sibling Spotlight

Episode #59 | Sibling Spotlight

This week we are talking with Roni, our Sibling Spotlight Facilitator at the ISAAC Foundation. Sibling Spotlight is a specially designed program for kids of all ages who all have one thing in common. They each have a sibling touched by autism or other special needs. The goal of the program is to provide a healthy support system and coping skills through fun and engaging activities that ultimately help them navigate this complicated journey. This is a monthly program, offered exclusively by the ISAAC Foundation, where young people come together in a fun and safe environment to interact with peers, mentors and program facilitators.

We are discussing the importance of sibling support and how to determine if your neuro-typical children are struggling with living  in an autism household.

Episode #6 | Making it Fair Among Your Children

Episode #6 | Making it Fair Among Your Children

In this episode, a group of parents joined me to debate whether its possible to make it “fair” when raising both neuro-typical and neuro-diverse kids.   Join us for:

  • Deeper discussion on how to treat each child equal, which may not seem fair.
  • What constitutes fair?
  • The benefits of one-on-one time with each child separately.
  • Fairness between the sexes (boys vs. girls).
  • Fairness meter among siblings.
