Overview

Views from Our Shoes: Growing Up with a Brother or Sister with Special Needs

"I can't imagine havimg a plain old sister," writes ten--year--old Ryan Clearwater. He is one of 45 siblings in View From Our Shoes who share their experiences as the brother or sister of someone with a disability. The kids whose essays are featured here range in age from four to eighteen and are the siblings of youngsters with a variety of special needs, including autism, cerebral palsy, development delays, ADD, hydrocephalus, visual and hearing impairments, Down and Tourette syndromes. Their personal tales introduce young siblings to others like them, perhaps for the first time, and allow them to compare experiences. A glossary of disabilities provides easy--to--understand definitions of many of the conditions mentioned.
