Siblings

A diagnosis of autism in the family can have a huge impact on the child's siblings. Our support session will be delivered as workshops, specifically for siblings of individuals with autism.

Similar to Family Day activities, these sessions:

  • Provide an opportunity to meet other siblings of individuals with Autism.
  • Offer the chance to discuss problems and concerns - they can be open and honest in a non-judgmental environment.
  • Involve a range of activities
  • Reduce social isolation
  • Provide opportunity for parents to have spend time with their child with autism
  • Increase siblings' confidence and offer learning around strategies to cope with issues that arise.

We have identified that Autism has an impact on the whole family, The Whole Autism Family now works closely with young carers project that works with Kirklees.

Again keep an eye on our Events calendar page to keep up to date with all upcoming events.
