Just finished listening to the NPR’ piece ‘A Brother Recalls Life In the Shadow of Autism,’ about a sibling who grew up in family with a brother with autism. 

Kari Taro Greenfield’s book “A Boy Alone: A Brother’s Memoir’ about his childhood experience was just released. His is a bleak tale, and a harsh reminder of how tough and lasting the challenges of special needs can be on sibs- and how important it is that parents work hard to meet their needs, too. Even then, there are no guarantees.

I found Greenfield’s story incredibly sad.

The direct link to the piece is not working right now. Perhaps it’s overwhelmed with hits, so here is the link to NPR.org where you can find the story link once the glitch is fixed.
