In this section you can find out about the experience of having a brother or sister on the autism spectrum, by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 14 siblings in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as family life, highs and lows and thinking about the future. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
