~Brotherly/Sisterly Love~

While having a special needs sib presents challenges, it also comes with opportunities. Kids who grow up with a sibling with special health or developmental needs may have more of a chance to develop many good qualities, including:
  • patience
  • kindness and supportiveness
  • acceptance of differences
  • compassion and helpfulness
  • empathy for others and insight into coping with challenges
  • dependability and loyalty that may come from standing up for their brother or sister.

This is so very true....I see this just out of the "typical kiddos" that are in the sped classrooms as opposed to those that aren't...
