As some of you know, I am the sister in law of an individual with autism. He is a man, in his 50's, who grew up in less enlightened times (to put it mildly). Nowadays, we have support for parents, and for sibllings, of those with autism and other developmental, mental, physical, and medical disabilities.
The Sibling Support Project is a very worthwhile support organization for those who have siblings with autism such as my spouse. As the person who sent the below email gave permission, I am sharing this with all of my readers.
Please consider using this link for some of your holiday shopping. I know I advocate 'buying local" but if you choose to shop online, please consider this.
Dear friend of Sibshops and the Sibling Support Project:
